Jacob Arnett, MEN'S GOLF

Junior Jacob Arnett of the Oglethorpe men's golf team has been named the SAAC Male Athlete of the Week for his efforts at the Chick-fil-A Collegiate Invitational early this week.

Arnett tied for the individual medal at the event, which was held at Stonebridge Golf Club in Rome, Georgia. He fired three straight under-par rounds, putting up 3-under-par 69 in the first, and 1-under 71 in each of the final two rounds. That totaled a 5-under 211, putting him in a tie with Tanner Tabor of Millsaps for his second career individual medal. The Stormy Petrels also earned their second tournament championship of the fall season, taking the event by eight strokes over North Carolina Wesleyan.

Arnett and the rest of the Petrels will now head into the winter break. They'll return on March 5 for the Callaway Gardens Collegiate Invitational in Pine Mountain.
