WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Senior Ryan Nagy was named Colonial Athletic Association Golfer-of-the-Week after opening his final season with a 13th-place finish at the Tar Heel Intercollegiate last weekend.
Nagy (71-75-72=218) led the Seahawks, who finished eighth against a strong field that included Georgia Tech, NC State and host North Carolina, who were among six schools from the ACC. The senior from Raleigh, N.C., entered the final round tied for 24th, but moved into the top-20 with an even-par-72 in the third and final round.
For Nagy, it was his first top-20 finish since 2012 when he finished 11th at the CAA Championships. He converted 10 birdies on the tournament.
