BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – Senior women's golfer Julia Nittoli has been named OVC Golfer of the Week as announced by the conference office on Wednesday.
Nittoli took medalist honors at this week's Morehead State/Greenbrier Invitational held at the Greenbrier Country Club in Lexington, Kentucky. The San Antonio, Texas native carded rounds of 74-72-71 to finish at 217 (+1), which bested the field of 54 by two shots. Nittoli was the only player in the field to break par during Tuesday's final round. It marked her first collegiate individual title and first for the program since the 2017-18 season. Her performance helped Belmont to a second-place finish in the nine-team field that included five total OVC teams.
This marks the first time that Julia has earned Golfer of the Week honors from the OVC. The last Belmont golfer to earn weekly honors from the conference was Mallory Sullivan during October of 2017.
Julia and her teammates will be back in action on September 30-October 1 at the APSU Intercollegiate in Clarksville, Tennessee.
