Brendan Kelleher Earns GNAC Men's Golf Honors

BOSTON, MA-Junior Brendan Kelleher (Hopedale, MA/Hopedale HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's golf team has been honored the Great Northeast Athletic Conference.

 

Kelleher has been named GNAC Men's Golfer of the Week.

 

Kelleher finished fourth at the Southern Maine Fall Classic over the weekend, shooting a one-over-par 72 Sunday and then a 75 Monday for a 36-hole total of 147. UMass Dartmouth shot scored of 301 and 298 for 599 and finished fourth overall.

 

"It's great to see Brendan recognized," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Joel Baptista. "He had an outstanding tournament.  Brendan's battled illness and the injury bug his freshman and sophomore years so this year is kind of his coming out party.  Not only does he get it done on the golf course, but he also gets it done in the classroom.  He is the definition of a true student-athlete."

 

The Corsairs will return to action at the Johnson & Wales Invitational this weekend.
