The Ohio Athletic Conference named Mount Union junior Dillon Bright (Granville/Granville) its Men's Golf Player of the Week on Tuesday (Oct. 9).
Bright placed first out of 31 golfers over the weekend at the River Greens Fall Intercollegiate, hosted by Muskingum University, to help the Purple Raiders to their first tournament victory of the season. Bright shot a 71 on Saturday and followed with a 74 on Sunday to total 145 strokes for the tournament. He edged out John Carroll's Alex DiPalma and Raider teammates Chad Sanders (Chardon/Chardon) and Jon Lieser (Minerva/Minerva) by just one stroke.
Bright and the Raiders next hit the links on Thursday (Oct. 11) for the Phipps Invitational at the Alliance Country Club in Alliance, Ohio.
