Luther junior Joel Bruns has been named the men's golf athlete of the week by the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.

Bruns, a native of Avon, Minn., won the six-team Loras Spring Invitational by one stroke with an even-par 143. He fired a one-under 71 at Waveland Golf Course in Des Moines Saturday, then followed it up Sunday with one-over 72 at Otter Creek Golf Club in Ankeny. Luther won the team title by eight strokes over Wisconsin-Stout in a field that included five of eight IIAC schools.

Bruns is the son of Dwaine and Jeanne Bruns.
