Ciolek named Golfer of the Week, Sinacola recognized as Rookie of the Week
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (September 18, 2017) – Senior Joe Ciolek (South Hadley, Mass.) and freshman Tyler Sinacola (North Attleboro, Mass.) of the Western New England University men's golf team have both earned weekly honors from the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) following the Golden Bears' record-breaking performance over the weekend at the Duke Nelson Invitational in Middlebury, Vt.
Ciolek led Western New England to a second place finish in a strong 22-team field as the Golden Bears posted their lowest two-round score in program history. He placed second overall in the 113-player field, following up his one-over par 72 on Saturday with a one-under 70 on Sunday, which was tied for the lowest single-round score of the weekend.
Sinacola also played a key role in Western New England's historic performance, as he tied for third overall with a two-day score of 143. Sinacola turned in an even par 71 on Sunday after carding a one-over 72 during Saturday's action.
The Golden Bears will be back in action next weekend at the Williams Fall Invitational, hosted by Williams College at Taconic Golf Club in Williamstown, Mass.
