SOMERSET, N.J. - SHU junior Joseph Serrantino (Cromwell, Conn.) was named Golfer of the Week by the Northeast Conference for the week ending April 5.

Serrantino posted consistent finishes for the Pioneers through four rounds of golf this weekend as they faced back-to-back competition at the Yale Spring Opener and the Villanova Wildcat Invitational. In his first two-round outing the junior helped Sacred Heart notch second-place, shooting identical rounds of 74 to tie for fifth place. His 148 put him second for the Pioneers and eight strokes over the par-70 layout.

At the Wildcat Invitational, Serrantino returned to the links to post an impressive one-under par 70 in the first round. The Connecticut native came down the final stretch with a 75, winding up sixth overall and first for Sacred Heart. Serrantinto's 145 also bested league golfers from Long Island, Fairleigh Dickinson and Wagner.

The Pioneers are back on the links at the New England Championship, in Newport, R.I., on April 10 and 11.
