FAU's McHugh Named Men's Sun Belt Conference Golfer of the Month

FAU sophomore Kelly McHugh has been named the men's Sun Belt Conference Golfer of the Month for March, as announced by the Sun Belt Conference office.

McHugh finished as a top 10 individual in all six competitions for the month of March. The Lakeland , Florida native was two under par in a dual meet with Niagara University and four under against Rutgers University , receiving medalist honors in both dual meets. McHugh also tied for second in a dual meet with the University of Dayton . McHugh’s efforts in the three dual meets helped FAU to victory as a team.

After a slew of dual meets, McHugh assisted FAU to its first tournament win in several years, hitting five under par at the Treasure Coast Classic and earning runner-up honors to fellow teammate Justin Thompson. The engineering major also tied for 7th at the Butler North/South tournament. McHugh opened both the Treasure Coast Classic and Butler North/South with seasonal best rounds of 67.

At the Inaugural FAU Spring Break Championship and against a nationally ranked field, McHugh tied for 10th place. Over the last nine holes McHugh hit three birdies. McHugh’s two birdies on the last two holes held off several teams making a late charge and solidified FAU’s 9th place finish.

McHugh will compete with the rest of the FAU men's golf team at the Sun Belt Conference Tournament held in Houston , Texas on April 20-22.
