Rob Leaver Earns Great Northeast Athletic Conference Honors

Sept. 29, 2009

NASHUA, NH-A member of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's golf team has been honored by the Great Northeast Athletic Conference.

Senior Rob Leaver (Lakeville, MA/Apponequet HS) has been GNAC Golfer of the Week.

Leaver led the Corsairs at last week's season-opening Duke Nelson Invitational at the Ralph Myhre Golf Course at Middlebury. He shot scored of 78 and 77 for a 36-hole total of 155, and finished in a tie for 13th place. UMass Dartmouth shot a team score of 643 and finished 12th in the 21-team field.

"I think the recognition for Rob is well-deserved," said Head Coach Joel Baptista. "Rob worked really hard over the summer, and the fruits of his labor showed in the tournament. He was very consistent both days, and we expect good things out of Rob going forward this fall."

The Corsairs will return to action at the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championships at Farmington, CT this weekend.
