Peter Ballo Named NEC Men’s Golfer of the Week

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Sacred Heart men's golfer Peter Ballo (Stamford, Conn.) was named the Northeast Conference Men's Golfer of the Week on Wednesday after winning the individual title at last weekend's Rhody Invitational.

Ballo led the tournament after the first round with an even-par round of 71, one of only two rounds of par the entire weekend. He then carded a three-over 74 on Sunday to win the tournament by one stroke over Joseph Leavitt of Rhode Island. The Pioneers finished second in the team competition.

The Pioneers are back in action April 11-13 at the D-I New England Championships at Mohegan Sun Country Club at Pautipaug in Baltic, Conn.
