    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Junior Jack Perry (Santa Barbara, Calif./Santa Barbara) has been named the Big Ten Golfer of the Week after recording his third top-10 of the season at the U.S. Intercollegiate last week.

    Perry is sharing the honor this week with Minnesota's Erik Van Rooyen.

    Perry finished ninth among the 95-individual field at the 17-team tournament with a 54-hole total of 1-under par 209. After opening with a 1-over 71, Perry carded consecutive under par 69s in the last two rounds to climb up into the top-10. Those scores were the first times this season that the incredibly consistent Perry has broken 70 despite leading the team with a 71.92 scoring average and recording 11 rounds at par or better.

    Perry has finished in the top-20 in every tournament the Wildcats have played this year save for two, and he won the season-opening Inverness Intercollegiate in September.

    Northwestern returns to action April 15-16 in a home event, the Kemper Sports Intercollegiate, at The Glen Club in Glenview, Ill.
