NAVIGATO EARNS CCAA GOLFER OF THE WEEK HONOR
After nabbing a season-best finish at the UCSB Intercollegiate, Adam Navigato was named the CCAA Golfer of the Week on April 17. Navigato tied for fifth among 55 players at Sandpiper Golf Course in Santa Barbara. Over two days and 54 holes, he totaled a 217, 1 over par on the par 72, 7,062 yard layout. The junior fired rounds of 73, 72, and 72 and had 10 birdies, tied for the second-most during the event. Navigato made a big jump on the leader board Tuesday as he was tied for 13th following Monday's two rounds of play. His consistent performance helped UC San Diego to a fourth-place finish. Six of the eight teams competing were from the NCAA Division I ranks. Also in the field was Cal State Monterey Bay, the nation's 17th-ranked squad in NCAA Division II. The Tritons finished in front of Monterey Bay and three DI teams. It is Navigato's second weekly honor from the CCAA as he was tabbed Golfer of the Week in October of 2017. He is a Cognitive Science major in UC San Diego's Roosevelt College.
