FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- Covenant freshman golfer Will DeMersseman has been named the USA South Rookie of the Week, for the period ending Oct. 16, announced the conference on Wednesday.

DeMersseman becomes the first Covenant golfer to earn a weekly honor from the USA South since joining the league in 2013.

A freshman from Jefferson, Ga., DeMersseman helped the Scots to a team title at the Reeder Cup this week with a two-day score of 151 (78-73) that placed him in a tie for sixth overall. DeMersseman, making his collegiate debut in the tournament, carded a 78 in Monday's opening round before tying for the low round score of the day with a 73 on Tuesday. In the final round, the freshman notched birdies on the first and last hole to help Covenant to a team score of 300 and a tournament title. 

DeMersseman's tournament score of 151 was just three strokes behind the three-way tie for first that included Covenant's Marshall Kent and Nathan Hawkins.

Covenant, which has placed in the top five in each of its first two tournaments, will compete in the Chick-fil-A Invitational on Oct. 22-23 in Rome, Ga.
