FREDERICKSBURG, Va.—Babson College first-year Jackson Rothwell (Victoria, British Columbia) was tabbed as the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Men's Golfer of the Week on Thursday morning.
Rothwell tied for second place with a 36-hole total of 1-over par 143 last weekend at Middlebury's Duke Nelson Invitational. He fired a season-best 2-under 69 in Saturday's opening round before closing with a 3-over 74 to finish alongside senior Chris Bornhorst (West Newton, Mass.) with his second consecutive top-three finish to begin the year.
Rothwell, who tied for third place at Trinity's Bill Detrick Invitational back on September 7-8, currently leads the Beavers with a 72.00 stroke average.
Babson returns to action on Saturday when it begins first round play in the Williams Invitational at Taconic Golf Club.
