LAS CRUCES, N.M. - New Mexico State senior Kenneth Fadke II was selected as the Western Athletic Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week for his performance last week.

Fadke, a senior from Hobbs, N.M., paced the way for NM State in the Aggies spring opener. Playing in the Aggies No. 1 position, Fadke posted a 1-under-par 70 on the 7,262-yard course at Tucson’s Sewailo Golf Club in the first round of the Arizona Intercollegiate. He placed 23rd individually with an 8-over 221 in the field of 84 golfers. The Aggies finished 11th in the 17-team field that featured three Top 25 teams.

Fadke is the first men’s golfer honored by the conference in the 2015-16 season.

The Aggies have a couple of weeks before their next competition. NM State travels to Houston for the All-America Intercollegiate on Feb. 19-21.
