NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Rhode Island senior Dawson Jones was selected as the Atlantic 10 Conference Golfer of the Week, while Saint Joseph’s freshman J.T. Spina was chosen as the league’s Rookie of the Week. The awards were announced Thursday for events played Sept 13-19.
Jones won his second straight A-10 Golfer of the Week honor after tying for fifth at Hartford Hawks Invitational, finishing the two-round tournament 5-under par (139). The Howell, N.J., product opened with a 69, and then carded a 70 his second time through. The two scores kept him under par for five rounds this fall.
