Bamberger earns NCCAA weekly award

GREENVILLE, S.C. - King College's Josh Bamberger was named the NCCAA Men's Golf Student-Athlete of the Week by the national office.

Bamberger, a junior from Waterloo, Canada, tied for the top spot at the Pfeiffer Falcon Cup last week. He was a part of a five-way playoff and was the last player eliminated to finish second on the fourth extra hole. Bamberger shot a 73 on Tuesday after a 72 in Monday's opening round for a two-day score of five-over par. The 73 helped the junior overcome a one-shot deficit after the opening 18 holes.

The Tornado will play in the Myrtle Beach Intercollegiate on Monday and Tuesday at the Sea Trail Golf Club.
