The final Athlete of the Week for the 2017-18 academic year is National Champion Dan Lapp.

Lapp won the NJCAA Division III Men's Golf National Championship with a dominating victory, taking the lead on the third day of th tournament and then running away from the field for a nine-stroke win. He had both the best tournament score and the best individual round, with his final day 68 marking the only time anyone broke 70 on the par-72 Chautauqua Golf Club Lake Course.

Lapp became the second golf national champion in Tompkins Cortland history, and the first since Kris Boyes in 2008. Lapp also set a new program record for year-long scoring average (74.0).
