Simons named Atlantic 10 Golfer of the Week

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – After capturing medalist honors at last weekend's Little 3 Championship, St. Bonaventure redshirt sophomore Darren Simons has been named the Atlantic 10 Conference Golfer of the Week.

Simons led the Bonnies to the title of the 60th annual Little 3 event, which was played on Saturday, Sept. 28, at Pine Acres Golf Club in Bradford, Pa. St. Bonaventure finished nine shots ahead of Canisius (593) and well in front of Niagara.

Simons, a native of St. Mary's, Pa., opened with a five-under par 67 in the morning round, then carded a 73 in the afternoon for a four-under par total of 140.  His victory earned Simons a berth in next summer's Porter Cup, a prestigious amateur tournament held each year at Niagara Falls Country Club.

This is the first time Simons has been named A-10 Golfer of the Week.

St. Bonaventure's next action will be on Oct. 6-7 in the Binghamton Invitational at The Links at Hiawatha Landing.
