BROWN NAMED USCAA GOLFER OF THE WEEK

Newport News, VIRGINIA –Senior Reynold Brown (Essex, CT) of the University of Maine-Presque Isle has earned this week's USCAA Men's Golf Player of the Week honors.

In three events last week for the Owls, Brown won an individual medal, and placed 2nd and 5th in two other tournaments.  Winning the individual championship at the Maine Maritime Invitational with a 75 on the 70-par Castine Country Club Course, Brown pushed the Owls to a second place team finish, 3 strokes back of host MMA on Thursday.

During extremely difficult course conditions Saturday, Brown shot a 5-over, 77 to take 5th place at the Husson University invitational.  The cold, wet and windy conditions continued Sunday at the Thomas College Invitational.  The 30+ mph winds and downpour of rain didn't get in the way of Brown who finished second individually with a 74, fortifying the team victory for UMPI over the squads from St. Joe's of Maine, UMF and Colby College.

Brown, a 2012 USCAA All-American, now has captured 10 medals in his college career.
