NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA- For the second time in as many weeks of play, a member of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's golf team has been honored by the Great Northeast Athletic Conference.

Junior Kevin Rewinski (West Springfield, MA/West Springfield HS) has been named GNAC Golfer of the Week. Senior George Gillmore (Cotuit, MA/Barnstable HS/Fairfield) was honored after UMass Dartmouth's first tournament.

Rewinski led the Corsairs at last weekend's Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III New England Championships at the Hampden Country Club, shooting a 74 Sunday to finish in a tie for fifth place overall. The tournament was reduced to 18 holes because of inclement weather Saturday.

"It's a well-deserved honor for Kevin," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Joel Baptista. "It's very indicative of the hard work he put in over the summer, and the hard work he has put into practice. This award shows the fruits of his labor. It's nice to be recognized individually, but our goal is what's coming up this weekend, the conference championships."

The Corsairs will return to action at the Great Northeast Athletic Conference championships in Gorham, ME this weekend.
