Moir and Whittemore Named in NAC All-Conference Awards

CASTINE, Maine -- Maine Maritime Academy's junior Joey Moir (Bangor, Maine) has been named to the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) Second Team and senior Chase Whittemore (Skowhegan, Maine) has been named to the NAC Sportsmanship Team for the second year in a row. 

Moir paced the Mariners to a fourth place finish at the NAC Championship, finishing in a three-way tie for 11th place. This season, the co-captain averaged an 80.8 on the course, competing in eight events and carded a career-low 74 at day one of the Husson Invitational in September and followed that up with a 75 at the Mariner Invitational in October to lead Maine Maritime. 

A co-captain, Whittemore competed in six events this season for the Mariners averaging an 83.4 through nine rounds of golf and tied his previous low round of 74 at the Maine State Championships in September. The NAC Men's Golf Sportsmanship Team is reserved for those who have distinguished themselves through demonstrated acts of sportsmanship and ethical behavior. The honorees are individuals who have positively affected the men's golf culture and environment and whose behavior clearly demonstrates sportsmanship and integrity that go beyond the golf playing rules and etiquette.
