Matt Munden Honored by Great Northeast Athletic Conference

Oct. 6, 2009

NASHUA, NH-A member of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's men's golf team has been honored by the Great Northeast Athletic Conference.

Junior Matt Munden (Brockton, MA/Brockton HS) has been GNAC Rookie Golfer of the Week.

Munden led the Corsairs at last week's Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III Championships at the Tunxis Plantation Golf Course in Farmington, CT. He shot scores of 79 and even-par 72 for a 36-hole total of 151, and tied for seventh place. UMass Dartmouth shot a team score of 615 and finished second in the 14-team field.

`Matt's honor is well-deserved" said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Joel Baptista. "He showed his golf maturity, in that we told him we needed him to step up, and he did, beyond our wildest dreams. He had the low round of the tournament on the second day, and we expect good things from him going forward."

The Corsairs will return to action at the Rhode Island College Invitational Friday.
