NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Saint Joseph’s senior Michael O’Brien has been named Atlantic 10 Co-Golfer of the Week, conference officials announced on Friday.

O'Brien captured medalist honors at the Cornell Invitational this past weekend in the Hawks' season-opening event. Entering Sunday's final round tied for third, O'Brien fired a five-under-par 66 in final round to jump two spots and earn medalist honors. O'Brien, a West Chester, Ohio native, posted a six-under three-round score of 207 (72-69-66) to win the individual title by three strokes over Columbia's Daniel Core.

O'Brien shares the weekly conference honor with VCU's Ian Peng.

The Hawks are back in action this Saturday at the Dartmouth Invitational.
