RUSSELLVILLE — Henderson State’s men’s and women’s golf programs swept the conference’s weekly awards on Wednesday when both Mitchell Ford and Daphney Tilton were named GAC Golfer of the Week by the league office.
The honor for Ford is the second-straight and the fifth of his career at HSU. Tilton’s nod is the first GAC Golfer of the Week award of her time with the Reddies.
Ford was the GAC’s top finisher at the Oak Tree Invitational this week and tied for fourth place with a three-round score of 5-over 215. He had a low round of 1-under 69 to help record the 18th Top-10 result of his career and buoy Henderson to a fourth-place finish as a team.
Tilton tied for eighth in a loaded field at the Emerald Coast Classic, where she shot 5-over 147 for 36 holes. It was the fifth Top-10 finish of her time at HSU and her second this season. Tilton’s big effort helped the Reddie women take second-place in the 17-team event.
