Stanaland named USA South Golfer of the Week

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – Huntingdon's Jon Colten Stanaland was named the USA South Athletic Conference Golfer of the Week on Wednesday.

Stanaland was recognized for his performance in winning the Emory Spring Invitational last weekend.

The senior shot a 3-under-par 137 to win his first collegiate tournament. Stanaland fired his best collegiate round with a 3-under 67 in the opening round and closed the tournament with an even-par 70.

This is the third straight season a Huntingdon golfer has won the Emory Spring Invitational. Former Hawk Addison Lambeth won the event in 2016 and 2017.

Stanaland is the fifth Hawk to earn medalist honors since the start of the fall season, joining juniors Mark Connelly, Stephen Shephard and Henry Gee and sophomore Drew Mathers.
