GOLF: Four Terriers Earn NAC End of Year Awards

WATERVILLE, Maine – The North Atlantic Conference (NAC) has announced its end of year awards for men's golf and four Terriers have been recognized. Evan Parsons (Woolwich, Maine) was named to the All-Conference First Team, Kent Johnson (Carmel, Maine) was named to the All-Conference Second Team, Isaac Salisbury (Freeport, Maine) was named to the Sportsmanship Team and head coach Don Roberts was named Coach of the Year.

Parsons finished fourth at the NAC Championship, shooting a two-day total of 148. Johnson handed in a two-day card of 152 to tie for seventh.

Salisbury was named to the Sportsmanship Team which is reserved for those who distinguish themselves through demonstrated acts of sportsmanship and ethical behavior. The honorees positively affect the men's golf culture and match environment, and clearly demonstrate sportsmanship and integrity beyond golf rules and etiquette.

In only the second year of a return to varsity NCAA status, Roberts helped Thomas finish third overall at the 2019 NAC Championship with consistent and steady play, and a two-day combined score of 618 (309, 309). Roberts placed two golfers in the top 11 to earn All-Conference Honors. Another rookie, Aaron Pion, was the first Thomas golfer to earn NAC weekly honors since 2007 - which he did with a medalist performance the week prior to the NAC Championship.  This is the first such conference honor for Roberts, who has accumulated a number of awards from Golf Digest and the Maine PGA over the course of his long career.
