Nick Fairweather Named Atlantic 10 Golfer of the Week

KINGSTON, R.I. -- Nick Fairweather was named the Atlantic 10 Golfer of the Week for his outstanding play this past weekend at the MacDonald Cup.

The Windham, N.H. native carded his collegiate low round during the Oct. 6 final round - a 2-under 68 - helping propel the Rams to a fourth place team finish among a 14-team field that included #8-ranked Illinois.  

Rhode Island returns to action this weekend, playing back-to-back tournaments on Oct. 12-13 and Oct. 14-15.
