HUNTSVILLE - A Huntsville athlete has been recognized for his efforts.
Queen’s University of Charlotte’s Braeden Cryderman was named as the Atlantic 10 Conference Golf Player of the Week for the Oct. 10 to 16 period.
Cryderman, playing in his first action of the 2012 fall season for the North Carolina school, posted career-best rounds and tournament scores, finishing in a tie for third overall at the Rod Myers Invitational, hosted by Duke University earlier this month.
The sophomore led all players with 12 birdies through the first two rounds, and tied for the most total birdies for the weekend with 15. With a one-over par 73 in Sunday’s final round, he landed at four-under for the tournament, and was one of just 12 players in the tournament field to post a sub-par round twice in the weekend.
He was tied for the second-lowest score on par-four holes (-1) and was tied for fourth on par three holes (also at -1).
Cryderman’s top-five finish was the second for a Charlotte golfer in a tournament this season. The Charlotte 49ers finished third overall, it was the third tournament in a row where they finished fourth or higher.
