FOREST, Va. – Guilford College's Josh Hill collected his second Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Men's Golfer of the Week Award of the season Monday. Hill and teammates Zachary Evens and James Mishoe have combined to win the league's weekly prize five times this year.
Hill captured his second college medalist honor March 27 at the 54-hole West Cup hosted by the University of La Verne. His par-four on the two-day event's 54th hole gave him a one-stroke victory in the 85-man field comprised of many of NCAA Division III's top West Region golfers. Hill shot 71-74-71-216 on the par-71, 6,703-yard layout in the foothills of southern California's San Gabriel Mountains. He ranked third in the field with 35 pars and played the course's three par-three holes and one-over for the tournament, the second-best average.
Hill, a 2017 Division III PING honorable mention All-American, ranks third in the ODAC and second on the team with a 73.1 strokes per game average. He has six sub-par rounds and four even-par rounds among his 19 rounds. Hill was runner-up at the Kinder Memorial in September and has four top-five finishes in eight events. He stands 42nd in the Golfstat.com Division III NCAA Player Rankings.
Coach Justin Tereshko's Quakers are ranked eighth in both the Bushnell/Golfweek Division III Coaches' Poll and the Golfstat.com Division III Team Rankings. Guilford hosts the Division III Match-Play Invitational April 6-7 at the Grandover Resort, which also hosts the 2018 Division III Men's Golf Championships May 15-18.
