Junior Matt DiEleuterio helped the Wilmington University golf team to three victories this past week, earning him the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Player of the Week in golf’s first Weekly Report of the 2014 spring season.

DiEleuterio started the week with a 74, two-over par in a head-to-head tournament against Bentley on Tuesday. His effort landing him fourth overall, rounding out the Wildcats’ team scoring in the victory.

The junior took over medalist honors in the team’s head-to-head battle against Felician on Friday, posting a 76, four-over par to help the Wildcats to a commanding victory.

The two tournaments propelled DiEleuterio into the starting lineup for the Bear Trap Dunes Invitational starting on Saturday, hosted by Dowling College.

His 74 on Saturday put him alone in second overall, trailing only teammate Andrew Baldo. DiEleuterio finished with a 76 on Sunday, finishing with a two-round score of 150, six-over par for the tournament. His 150 allowed him to finish in a tie for third overall. All three tournaments were played at Bear Trap Dunes in Ocean View, Del.

The CACC Player of the Week award is the first for DiEleuterio of his three-year career. He was joined on the report by Chestnut Hill’s Kevin O’Donnell who was named the CACC Rookie of the Week after finishing the Bear Trap Dunes Invitational in 48th overall.

Softball’s Michelle Panasiti earned a spot on the Weekly Honor Roll after leading the team to a 3-5 overall week, including a doubleheader sweep in its CACC opener against Felician.
