Digby’s Myles Creighton has been named freshman of the week for men’s golf in the Big South Conference.
Creighton plays for Radford University Highlanders in Virginia. The Big South is made up of 11 NCAA Division I schools in Virginia and North and South Carolina.
In his first college golf tournament, Creighton tied for 32nd out of 92 golfers at 6-over-par 219 (73-74-72) at the Joe Feaganes Invitational.
The two-day event was held at the par 71, 6,573-yard Guyan Golf and Country Club in Huntington, West Virginia.
Creighton saved his best round for the final day, when he returned a 1-over-par 72 to the clubhouse. The freshman's final-round helped the Highlanders card a 4-under-par 280 on Tuesday to finish fourth as a team.
Radford is next in action at the Janney VCU Shootout, which will be held Sept. 22-23 at Hermitage Country Club in Manakin-Sabot, Virginia.
