WILMINGTON, North Carolina - Junior Payne McLeod was named Colonial Athletic Association Golfer-of-the-Week for the second time this fall after recording his second straight top-five finish at the Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate over the weekend.

The Seahawks combined to shoot a seven-under-par 281 on Sunday, their best round of the fall.

McLeod posted wins over seven top-100 golfers, including Jace Long of Missouri, the third-ranked golfer in the nation.
