Emmanuel College senior Nicholas Cyrus was named the Great Northeast Athletic Conference Men's Golf Player of the Week for the week ending on September 18th. Cyrus led the Saints Men's Golf Team in both of their matches last week. The Rockland, Massachusetts native carded an 85 on consecutive days to score first for Emmanuel. Cyrus' 85 on September 14th at the Elms College Blazers Invitational was good enough for 15th place overall. He shot a 41 on the front nine and a 44 on the back in the six-team tournament.

Cyrus also had the overall low score on September 15th in the Saints' dual-match with Newbury College at Franklin Park. His incredible 39 on the front and 46 on the back nine led Emmanuel to the match win, as the Saints under-shot the Nighthawks by 36 strokes.

Cyrus was named the GNAC Rookie of the Week once last season and he is just the second Emmanuel player to ever receive GNAC Men's Golf Player of the Week honors.
