Nuutinen, Morrison Named Athletes of the Week
April 24, 2012
FORT WORTH - TCU golf's Sanna Nuutinen and baseball's Preston Morrison have been named Athletes of the Week, it was announced Tuesday.
Nuutinen won medalist honors at the Mountain West Conference Championships, carding a 217 for the tournament and leading the Horned Frogs to their second consecutive conference title.
The Helsinki, Finland, native carded scores of 73, 70, and 74, before recording pars on four playoff holes to defeat Christine Wong, the player of the year in the Mountain West. With her victory, Nuutinen became the first Horned Frog golfer to win an individual conference title since 2003.
On Saturday, Morrison made his third start of the year, throwing seven innings at San Diego State and allowing just one run on five hits while walking none and striking out seven, a new career high.
The right-hander improved to 6-0 on the year and lowered his team-best ERA to 1.35 while leading the Frogs to a 5-1 victory over the Aztecs, their ninth consecutive victory.
