Three Fightin' Engineers Earn HCAC Players of the Week


POW Week5 WebTERRE HAUTE, IND. -- Three Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology student-athletes have been named Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Players of the Week for their efforts last week.

Freshman Peem Chanrotchanaphan (Chiang Mai, Thailand/Grace International School) was named Women's Golf Player of the Week, senior Ryan Landwehr (Tipp City, Ohio/Tippecanoe) claimed Football Offensive Player of the Week honors, and junior Suzana Mohd (Puchong, Malaysia/Mara University) earned Women's Tennis Player of the Week accolades.

Chanrotchanaphan earned second-team all-tournament recognition for her performance at the DePauw Women's Golf Invitational on Saturday and Sunday.  She placed ninth in a field that featured three nationally ranked teams in Washington University, Wittenberg and DePauw.  Her performance included rounds of 80 on Saturday and 83 on Sunday.

On the season, the chemical engineering major averages 82.0 strokes per round and has two top-five and four-top 10 efforts in five tournaments.  The women's golf team travels to Franklin on Sunday.

Landwehr passed for three touchdowns and ran for two more to help Rose-Hulman defeat Manchester University 44-30 on the road on Saturday.  He completed 20 of 33 passes for 298 yards and three scores, while rushing for 42 yards and two more touchdowns in the victory.

On the season, Landwehr has completed 89-152 passes for 907 yards and eight touchdowns.  The electrical engineering major also ranks second on the team with 160 rushing yards and four scores.  Rose-Hulman stands 2-2 overall and 2-0 in league play, and hosts Hanover College on Saturday. 

Mohd stands 5-2 on the season in singles play and 3-4 in doubles matches for the Fightin' Engineers.  Last week, she earned victories at the No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles positions in conference wins over Franklin and Manchester.  Her two points were especially critical in a 5-4 victory over Franklin on Wednesday.

Rose-Hulman stands 4-1 overall on the women's tennis season and 3-1 in conference play.  The Fightin' Engineers host Earlham College on Wednesday.
