Perez earns NEC Golfer of the Week

FAIRFIELD, Conn.— Sacred Heart University women's golf senior Alejandra Perez claimed the final Northeast Conference Golfer of the Week award for her outstanding play this past weekend.

Perez fired a career round of 70 to finish first at the Hartford Women's Invitational on Saturday as Sunday was canceled due to inclement weather. Her round blazed the field of 63 golfers and was three strokes better than the second-place finish. SHU finished just one stroke back of FDU for the lead in the shortened event.

The Pioneers travel down to LPGA International to defend their NEC Championship title. The 54-hole event opens on Friday, April 20.
