MARSHFIELD, Mass. – Mitchell College freshman Sam Gaboury was named New England Collegiate Conference Golfer and Rookie of the Week for the sport of men's golf, as announced by the league on Tuesday morning.
Gaboury finished as the individual medalist at the Emmanuel College Saints Invitational last week. He picked up his first collegiate win by shooting a two-over par round of 74 to best the field of 19 golfers. He played the front nine in one-under par and finished four shots ahead of the runner-up. The 74 was the lowest round carded by a Mitchell golfer since 2015.
Gaboury garnered the NECC's top weekly honor for the first time all season, as well as rookie honors for the fifth straight week. He has played in all six tournaments this season and leads the Mariners in scoring average (78.0) and top-five finishes (5).
