URI’s Gillis, O’Donovan Earn A-10 Honors
University of Rhode Island Golf stars Aidan O’Donovan and Brandon Gillis each received big honors from the A-10 for their performance this past week.
Gillis was named the A-10 Golfers of the Week, while O’Donovan was awarded the Rookie of the Week.
The redshirt senior fired a three-under 141 to help lead the Rams to is second straight team title at the Carpetbagger Classic this past week.
Gillis posted a two-under round on the opening day and followed up with a one under round on the final day.
He missed out on medalist honors by one shot.
O’Donovan tied for 16th overall at the Carpetbagger Classic, with a 149 (72-77). Hailing from Somerville, Mass., his 5-over 149 was the seventh best score in the field, and his opening round 72 placed him tied for eighth after the first round.
URI returns to action at Elon’s Cutter Creek Intercollegiate from March 31 through April 2.
