Bieniek is first Bronco golfer named All-MAC

April 30, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Senior Erica L. Bieniek was named this past week to the All-MAC First Team, becoming the first player in the five-year history of varsity women's golf at Western Michigan University to be named to an All-Mid-American Conference team.

Bieniek's selection was announced at the MAC championships held April 25-27 at Walden Ponds Golf Club in Indian Springs, Ohio. A four-year letter-winner Bieniek owns virtually every WMU record, including this year's individual scoring average of 76.6 (for 22 rounds). She won five individual medalist titles as a senior. At the MAC championships, she led the Broncos and finished tied for eighth overall with a 54-hole total of 230. WMU was fifth in the nine-team field for the second year in a row.

An accounting major from Scottville, Mich., Bieniek was graduated with a bachelor of business administration degree April 26, but was unable to attend her commencement ceremony, because of the MAC championships. To celebrate her graduation, Bieniek shot a one-under-par 71 on Saturday, which tied for the lowest round of the day.
