(KSDK Sports/MVC-Sports.com)- A pair of teammates brought home 'Golfer of the Week' honors in the Missouri Valley Conference this week. Ben Holm, a freshman from Loyola, and Alex Cusumano, a senior from Loyola, shared the award.
Both Cusumano and Holm tied for second place overall by posting identical scores of 146 (73-73) as each player shot a one-over 73 in both rounds at the Chicago State Invitational, September 23-24.
Cusumano, a senior lefthander, continued his strong play this fall by finishing just one stroke behind medalist Ricardo Solis of Texas-Pan American (75-70=145). For the season, Cusumano, who was named Missouri Valley Conference Men's Golfer of the Week on September 11, sports a team-best 72.9 average in 10 rounds and has tallied a pair of top-three finishes in four meets.
Holm, a freshman who was playing in just his second career tournament, put up a pair of 73s at the Chicago State Invitational to tie with teammate Alex Cusumano for second place. Competing as an individual, Holm trimmed nearly 20 strokes from his 36-hole score from his first appearance of the season at the Green Bay Invitational two weeks ago.
