BURNABY — Parkland Secondary School grad and Simon Fraser University golfer Nicky Jordan was named the Red Lion Athlete of the Week in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

Jordan earned the award thanks to a seventh place finish at the University of Victoria Vikes Shootout last week.

She carded an opening round of 83 at the Cordova Bay Golf Club before improving with a second round total of 76 for a tournament total of 159, helping the Clan earn fourth place.

Through three tournaments this season, Jordan is 10th in the conference in scoring average (82.5). She has been the top Clan golfer in all three tournaments she has played in.

The University of Victoria Vikes Shootout was the final tournament of the fall season for the Clan women. Jordan and her Clan teammates will resume competing when their spring schedule kicks off in February.
