LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee sophomore Nathaniel James (Keller, Texas/Keller) has been named the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Co-Golfer of the Week for his performance at the Jekyll Island Invitational over the weekend.

James tied for 11th place by shooting a two under par score of 67-72-79--218. Bridgewater College's Grady Ruckman also tied for 11th with a 218 and was named Co-Golfer of the Week, along with James.

For the season, James leads the ODAC with a 72.9 stroke average over 13 rounds. He earned First Team All-ODAC accolades last spring after finishing with a 74.9 average and tieing for second at the ODAC Championship.
