KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Fort Hays State sophomore golfer Maddux Mills has been named the latest MIAA Men’s Golf Athlete of the Week presented by T-Shotz, announced Wednesday by the league office.

Mills placed third in a field of 100 golfers at this week’s MSSU Men’s Fall Invitational, held at Shangri-La Golf Club & Resort in Monkey Island, Okla. The sophomore finished the three-round event with a cumulative score of 4-under 212, the lowest score amongst the 33 MIAA competitors in attendance.

The Liberal, Kan. native tied for first in the field with 15 birdies across the 54 holes while leading the way in par-3 scoring at 3-under. He opened the tournament with a 1-over 73 in the first round before firing a 5-under 67 in Monday afternoon’s round two thanks to six birdies on the card. Mills then circled seven birdies in the final round, including four in a five-hole stretch on the back nine.

Mills is the first Tiger to earn MIAA weekly honors since Skyler Tebo did so in the spring of 2018.

Mills and the rest of the Tigers will return to action next Monday and Tuesday (Oct. 3-4) at the Ichabod Invitational at Topeka Country Club in Topeka, Kan.
