NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – St. Bonaventure freshman Erik Stauderman has earned Atlantic 10 Golf Co-Rookie of the Week honors after his first week of collegiate competition, conference officials announced Friday.
Stauderman, a native of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., played in his debut event with the Bonnies Tuesday at the Little Three Championship. He helped the Brown and White to a third straight Little Three victory by finishing tied for second as the Bonnies won by 25 strokes over Canisius.
At Crag Burn Golf Club in East Aurora, Stauderman opened the day with a 1-under 71 and finished with even par 72 for a 143 total. He was just one shot off the winning score of 142 posted by teammate Jack Geise.
He shares the honors with Clayton Tribus of Davidson.
The Bonnies are back in action this Saturday and Sunday at the Cornell Invitational in Ithaca.
