For the past year, UC Davis senior golfer Demi Runas has made it easy for the Big West Conference to give out its monthly and yearly awards. The meetings probably go like this:
“Runas again?” “Yup.”
Last week, Runas, already the league’s reigning Player of the Year, picked up her second consecutive Big West Golfer of the Month award, sweeping the honors for the two-month fall season. They are the third and fourth conference monthly awards of her career.
To win the most recent one, the Greiner Athlete of the Week averaged 72.8 strokes over nine rounds, pacing the Aggies at all three of their events. After taking second place at Northwestern’s Windy City Collegiate Classic, Runas was seventh at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational.
She capped her month with a 2-under 69 at the Stanford Intercollegiate, taking 21st in an elite field.
