NEW HAVEN, Conn. - - Finishing in a tie for fifth overall at the Penmen Fall Invitational had led to the Wilmington University golf duo of Tyler Cleaves and Matthew Pulgini to both being named Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Golfers of the Week, as announced by the conference office on Wednesday.
