Sutton named Golfer of the Week

Sophomore Daniel Sutton was named the Big Sky Golfer of the Week by the conference Wednesday.

Sutton competed in the Hawkeye-Great River Entertainment Tournament over the weekend, earning a 10th place finish with a 4-under-par performance in the tournament’s concluding two rounds.

The sophomore finished with a 1-under-par 215 after shooting rounds of 75, 70 and 70 in the Iowa City, Iowa, tournament.

Sutton’s performance helped the Vandals finish seventh in the tournament, as the team shot a total of 874 at the Finkbine Golf Course.


Track and Field signs two recruits

The Idaho track and field program announced the signing of two recruits Tuesday afternoon.

Sprinter Silke Berendse and hurdler Hannah Reiman will join the Vandals in the fall.

Berendse, a Netherlands native, has produced several notable times this spring. The sprinter posted a time of 7.70 seconds in the 60-meter dash, which would have ranked sixth had she competed in the Big Sky Conference this season.

“We are truly excited to have Silke join the Vandal family,” said Tim Cawley, Idaho director of track and field. “She is a very powerful sprinter who can help the team in her open events as well as be a dynamic leg on the relays.”

Berendse has recorded times of 12.15 seconds in the 100-meter dash and 24.64 seconds in the 200-meter dash. The recruit also competes in the triple jump.

Cawley said he believes Berendse will immediately connect with her new teammates.

“I was really impressed with Silke through our conversations, and think she will really fit in well with the team,” Cawley said.
Reiman will join the Vandals after competing for Central Valley High School in Spokane Valley.

The high school senior has recorded a distances of 38-feet-3-inches in the triple jump and 16-feet-11-inches in the long jump.

Reiman also competes as a sprinter, posting times of 60.6 seconds in the 400-meter dash and 15.60 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles.

“We are excited to have Hannah join the Vandal family,” Cawley said. “She is a tough competitor and will fit in well with the team.”

Reiman said she intends to study accounting and finance at the University of Idaho.

“She is also a talented student and should excel in the classroom as well,” Cawley said.
