FAIRFIELD, CT - Sophomores Leo Garcia (Guaynabo, PR) and Bradley Neudorf (Virgil, Ontario) were named the Northeast Conference Co-Golfers of the Week today, after helping the Pioneers finish second in the Division I New England Championships last weekend.
Garcia fired a first-round, two-under-par 70 to help the Pioneers shoot a 296 in the first round championships at Trigg Memorial Golf Course in Providence, RI. The 296 total was the second lowest round by any team on the weekend, trailing just a 293 by eventual winning team Connecticut. The sophomore followed up his first round with a 75 to finish with a 145 total, tying him with teammate Brad Neudorf for third in the medalist race.
Neudorf fired a second-round, two-under-par 70, improving on his first round (75) by five strokes. His third-place-tie finish with Garcia helped earn him a share of the NEC Men's Golfer of the Week accolade, his first selection this season.
