KINGSTON, R.I. -- Branden Chicorka was named the Atlantic 10 Golfer of the Week today by the conference office, after helping the Rams to a second place team finish at the Wildcat Invitational on April 1-2 at the White Manor C.C. in Malvern, Pa.  

The senior from Enfield, Conn. finished in a tie for third place, with a 54-hole total of 218 (72-70-76).  It marked his best overall finish of 2012-13 and his fifth top 10 finish in six starts, dating back to the fall season.

He was even-par after the first 36 holes of play, shooting a 1-over par 72 during the morning session, carding birdies on the 7th and 17th holes.  During the afternoon session, Chicorka rattled off three straight birdies on the 10th, 11th, and 12th holes and shot a 1-under round of 70.

It marks the sixth time Chicorka has been honored by the A-10 as its weekly top golfer.
