COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State junior Lisa Strom (North Wales, Pa.) has been named Big Ten Athlete of the Week for women’s golf after her medalist performance last weekend. Strom becomes the second straight Buckeye to win Athlete of the Week accolades. Teammate Natalie Mosher garnered the same honor last week.

Strom won the Indiana Invitational on the second playoff hole over Mosher and Minnesota’s Kristi Weichert. Strom finished +9 (231) for the event with a low round of 76. The win marked her first-ever medalist finish.

Strom has now placed in the top 20 five times this season, including in each of the past three events. She led the Buckeyes to a second-place performance at Indiana, marking the team’s highest finish of the season.
