Toledo, Ohio---For the second consecutive week, an Owens Community College men's golfer has captured Ohio Community College Athletic Conference (OCCAC) golfer of the week recognition.
After Will Mullins (St. Bernadette's/Bristol, U.K.) won Co-OCCAC recognition last week, Dominic DiGiacomo (Ocean City/Ocean City, N.J.) stepped up and averaged a 71.5 over two tournaments in Columbus, Ohio this past weekend.
On Saturday, he shot a 2-over 74 to finish third individually in the Columbus State Classic. Then, on Sunday, he shot a 3-under 69 to capture medalist honors in the Columbus State Open. His score on the second day is the lowest round by any individual in conference play this year.
Overall, DiGiacomo and Mullins are tied for first place in the conference's individual standings through four tournaments with an average of 74.25 per round. Owens has won the first four of the eight OCCAC events this year.
With DiGiacomo's award today, Owens has now swept all five weekly conference awards this week. Jacey Gray (Springfield/Holland, Ohio) was named the OCCAC softball player of the week. Kailey Minarchick (Columbia Station/Columbia Station, Ohio) was named the OCCAC softball pitcher of the week. Casey Gose (Genoa/Genoa, Ohio) was named the OCCAC baseball player of the week, and Grant Peters (Eastwood/Pemberville, Ohio) was named the OCCAC baseball pitcher of the week.
