WATERVILLE, Maine – Castleton University senior Jacob Erwin was named North Atlantic Conference men's golfer of the week Monday afternoon following his individual medalist honors at the MCLA Trailblazer Invitational.
It marks the second consecutive week that a Spartan golfer has claimed the award after Nicholas Ojala earned the honor September 23.
Erwin put on a show at the MCLA Trailblazer Invitational Tuesday morning, firing off a one-over-par 73 to claim individual medalist honors at Berkshire Hills Country Club. After finishing in a tie for the lowest score of the day with Roger Williams' Ryan Burrill, the two dueled to another tie in a two-hole playoff. Erwin was named the individual champion based on back-nine scores, which he shot one-under par. Erwin's 77.6 stroke average ranks second on the team this season.
