NAPERVILLE, Ill. - Binghamton's Jake Katz was named America Sky Conference Golfer of the Week for his performance at the Lafayette Invitational this past weekend, the conference office announced Thursday.
Katz, a junior from Williamsville, N.Y., led Binghamton to victory at the Lafayette Invitational held at the Center Valley Golf Club in Lafayette, Pa. Katz opened the tournament with a 78 but responded with a record-breaking round of 66 at the par-72 course. The round of 66 was a school record for Katz who finished in a tie for second place in the tournament with 19 teams and 150 competitors. He lowered his team-best scoring average to an impressive 73.4 in nine tournaments this year.
Also nominated for the award was Texas-Pan American's Kevin Kirakossian.
