Riley Rohlfs Named the Spartan Athlete of the Week

YORK, PA – York College is proud to announce that freshman golfer Riley Rohlfs has been named the Spartan Athlete of the Week for the week ending September 8, 2019.

Rohlfs made his collegiate debut a highly memorable one as he won the individual title at the Inaugural Spartan Invitational at Royal Manchester Golf Club in Mt. Wolf, PA.

Rohlfs was good in his first collegiate round on Saturday as he fired a two-over-par 74. Rohlfs was even through the first six holes of the tournament before a trio of bogeys left him at 39 for his opening nine. He immediately trimmed a shot off that with a birdie on ten. He bogeyed 12 before a birdie on 17 gave him a 35 on the back for his two over 74.

On Sunday, he was fantastic as he scorched the course with a three-under-par 69. He was four-under on the front side as he had three birdies, one eagle, and a bogey en route to his 32. He shot 37 on the back with two birdies and three bogeys. He won the tournament by three strokes over Eastern's Nicky Marrollo.
