Jacob Arnett, MEN'S GOLF

Senior Jacob Arnett of the Oglethorpe men's golf team has been named the SAAC Male Athlete of the Week for his efforts at the SAA Fall Preview on Sunday.

Arnett won the individual medal at the event, shooting an 8-under-par 136 over 36 holes. That included a 7-under 65 in the opening round, a mark which tied the program record for most strokes under par in a round on a par-72 course. He carded seven birdies for that round, and did not score anything higher than a par on a hole.

He led his team to a first-place tie, as the Stormy Petrels came back from six strokes down after the first round to tie the Vikings for the championship.

Arnett and the rest of the Petrels will be back in action from Nicholasville, Kentucky, starting on Monday, when they take part in the NCAA Division III Men's Fall Preview.
