MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Faulkner's Matthew Nuttall and Peter Peng have been named to the all-Southern States Athletic Conference team the league announced this evening. Peng also earned all-freshman team recognition.
Nuttall, a junior from Southport, England, picked up the prestigious all-conference honor for the second straight year after securing four Top 5 finishes which included individual medals in the SCAD-Atlanta tournament and RedHawk Spring Classic, which bookended the year.
Nuttall's performance in the season finale, where he posted back-to-back two-under-par 70s, was good enough to garner an SSAC Golfer of the Week award as well.
Peng, a newcomer from Katy, Texas, turned head with five Top 10 finishes over the eight outings.
The duo helped lead the Eagles to six Top 5 finishes on the year, which included three second place tallies and a win in the RedHawk Spring Classic.
Aaron McClellan was named Faulkner's Champion of Character winner.
Faulkner sits in second place after the first of three rounds in the SSAC tournament. Play resumes tomorrow morning.
