OKLAHOMA CITY (Oct. 22, 2013) – Even as he plays this week in the National Christian College Athletic Association Championship, OC golfer Alasdair Dalgliesh is being honored for a star turn last week.

Dalgliesh, a senior from West Sussex, England, was named Tuesday as the NCCAA’s men’s golf student-athlete of the week for his performance in the Bill Ross Intercollegiate, hosted by Missouri-Kansas City at Milburn Golf and Country Club in Overland Park, Kan.

OC, the only non-NCAA Division I squad in the 15-team field for last week’s event, finished second in the team race by one shot to Central Arkansas, a top-100 NCAA Division I team, and beat 13 other Division I squads. Dalgliesh finished the tournament at 5-under par and improved his score each round (72-70-69) while beating 74 Division I players and winning an individual title for the third time in his career.

He’s the third OC golfer to win the NCCAA honor this fall, joining Johnny Ellis and Sam Johnston.

It’s the second time Dalgliesh has been named as a national player of the week, as he received that honor once from the NAIA as a sophomore during the spring of 2012.
