BARBOURVILLE, Ky. - Union College golfers Andy Dusek and Sydney Smith were named the Appalachian Athletic Conference Men's and Women's Golfers of the Week, respectively, for the period ending Mar. 17, the league announced on Monday.

Both Dusek and Smith earned this week's awards after leading the Bulldogs to a sweep at their annual Spring Invitational last week at Wasioto Winds in Pineville, as the Union's men's and women's teams won the event going away.

Dusek captured the individual men's title at the tournament, firing a one-under round of 71 in the second day of competition to finish even-par (144) , winning the tournament by three shots. Meanwhile, Smith bounced back from a first round 83 to shoot a 78 in the second round, capturing the women's individual tournament by two shots in the process.

The Union College men's and women's golf teams are taking part in two separate tournaments the next few days.

The Bulldog men's team is in Covington, Ga. for the SCAD-Atlanta Invitational, while the women's team is in London, Ky. for the SEKI Invite. Both events were slated to begin today, and finish up on Tuesday afternoon.
