            MACON, Ga. (Nov. 8, 2007) - At the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate, ETSU sophomore Seamus Power (Waterford, Ireland) erased one of the many school records established by recent graduate and three-time, first-team All-American Rhys Davies (Bridgend, Wales).

 

            His 54-hole total of 198 (-15) set a Buccaneer record for a three-day total en route to winning the individual title at the event. For his record-setting performance, he has earned his third Atlantic Sun Conference Golfer of the Month award, the conference office announced on Thursday.

 

            Power's win added to an ever-growing trophy collection. His other individual championship came at Santuary Cove in the 2007 Atlantic Sun Conference Championship. At the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate, he carded rounds of 65-66-67 - one stroke less than the 14-under, 199 Davies recorded at the 2004-05 NCAA East Regional.

 

            In the remainder of the month, Power fired three additional rounds of par or better. One week after his win, he tied for 22nd at the ETSU-hosted Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate at the Ridges, shooting rounds of 72, 71 and 72. He concluded the month by a competing at the Isleworth-UCF Collegiate Invitational. Power currently ranks third on the ETSU squad with a stroke average of 72.7.
