Senior Tyler Huggins (Harleysville, Pa./Souderton Area) had quite a week for The University of Scranton men's golf team last week, carding three rounds in the 70s, including a career-low 75. As a result, he has been named the Empire 8 Conference Athlete of the week for men's golf.
Huggins opened the week by firing a 7-over-par 78 to lead the Royals past Marywood (320-346) and Keystone (320-344) on Tuesday, April 17, at Glenmaura National Golf Club. A day later, he went one stroke lower in a narrow 306-307 loss to Keystone at Glenmaura National.
Huggins saved his best for the end of the week, shooting a career-low 75 at Glenmaura in Sunday's opening round of the Glenmaura National Collegiate Invitational. (It didn't count toward the Empire 8 award, but Huggins matched that 75 in Monday's final round, as well.)
This marks the first time Huggins has been named Empire 8 Conference Athlete of the Week.
