Simons is A-10 Golfer of the Week

After capturing medalist honors at last weekend's Little 3 Championship, St. Bonaventure redshirt sophomore Darren Simons has been named the Atlantic 10 Conference Golfer of the Week.

Simons led the Bonnies to the title of the 60th annual Little 3 event, which was played on Saturday, Sept. 28, at Pine Acres Golf Club in Bradford. St. Bonaventure finished nine shots ahead of Canisius (593) and well in front of Niagara.

Simons, a native of St. Marys, opened with a five-under par 67 in the morning round, then carded a 73 in the afternoon for a four-under par total of 140. His victory earned Simons a berth in next summer's Porter Cup, a prestigious amateur tournament held each year at Niagara Falls Country Club.

This is the first time Simons has been named A-10 Golfer of the Week.

St. Bonaventure's next action will be on Oct. 6-7 in the Binghamton Invitational at The Links at Hiawatha Landing.
