Josephson Named NEC Golfer of the Week for the Third Time This Fall

Junior men's golfer Kevin Josephson earned his third Northeast Conference Golfer of the Week honor on Wednesday, it was announced by the conference office. Josephson, who has earned medalist honors twice this fall, tied for the top spot at the 76th Annual NEIGA Championship on Monday and Tuesday. He finished second in the tournament after falling in a playoff.

Josephson advanced to a playoff at the 76th annual NEIGA Championships, but fell in the second hole to finish second in a field of 182 golfers. The three-time NEC Golfer of the Week shot an even par 72 in his first round of the tournament, before shooting a one under-par 71 in the final round. His 143 strokes tied him with Adam Vaccari of UConn following the final round. Vaccari then defeated Josephson on the second playoff hole.

The Blue Devil was named an All-New England Selection after his impressive second place finish. Josephson's performance led Central to a third place team finish, making it the fifth time in six years that the Blue Devils have finished among the top-five teams.
