WACO, Texas – Saad Milan of the University of Texas-Brownsville was named the Red River Athletic Conference Men's Golfer of the Week for Feb. 16-22, while UTB's Veronika Vasquez was tabbed as the RRAC Women's Golfer of the Week for the same dates. This is the second set of awards for the 2015 golf season.
Milan finished 21st in a talent-heavy field of 71 individuals at the Claud Jacobs Invitational at Victoria Country Club in Victoria, Texas. The senior from Torreon, Mexico, braved winds in excess of 40 miles per hour in the final round to shoot a three-round total of 228. Milan shot even par at 72 in the second round against a field that included nine of the top 25 teams in the NAIA on one of the more difficult courses on NAIA schedules.
