WATERVILLE, Maine – The North Atlantic Conference (NAC) has announced its weekly awards for golf and Thomas College freshman Aaron Pion (Waterville, Maine) has been named Rookie of the Week. Pion is the first Thomas golfer to earn a NAC weekly award since 2007, as the Terriers were a non-varsity program from 2010-2017.
Pion picked up his first career medalist honor in a tri-meet with UMPI and UMA on Wednesday, shooting +6 76 to out pace his closest competitor by five strokes. On Thursday, he helped the Terriers secure a third-place finish at the Mariner classic, tying for 16th with a score of 81.
Thomas will host the 2019 North Atlantic Conference Championship on October 12 and 13 at Waterville Country Club. Tee off is set for 9:30 AM both days.
