Morgan, Nwafornso Earn U.S. Marines Athlete of the Week Honors

A pair of seniors have earned Athlete of the Week honors presented by U.S. Marines - Kosi Nwafornso of men's soccer and Brent Morgan of the golf team.

Nwafornso converted on a penalty kick in the 83rd minute on Saturday night for the difference in a 1-0 victory over Little Three rival Niagara. The win moved the Bonnies to 3-1-1 on the season.

After his goal Saturday night, Nwafornso stands tied for second in Atlantic 10 goals with four this fall and third in points with nine.

The Bonnies are back in action Wednesday night at home vs. St. Francis (Pa.).

Morgan finished tied for eighth on the individual leaderboard in a field of 80 competitors this past weekend, highlighted by his final round 68.  The Ohio native started his day with a birdie on the par-4 first to begin an outstanding 3-under 33 on the front nine, then played even par on the homeward holes. He sank four birdies and had just one blemish on his scorecard – a bogey-5 on the par-4 13th.

Morgan's even par 213 is one of the top 10 lowest 54-hole scores in program history and his 68, the third of his career and second in three tournaments this fall, was just two strokes off the program record.

Earlier in the week, he helped the Bonnies to their third straight Little Three Championship with a tie for fourth following a 2-over 146 over 36 holes including an opening round 70.
