Radford University golfer Peter Gasperini of South Boston was named Big South Conference Men’s Golfer of the Week for matches played March 28 through April 3.

Gasperini, a redshirt junior, came through with his best individual standing of the season with his eighth-place finish in last week’s Wofford Invitational Tournament.

The South Boston resident posted a 3-under-par total of 213, with rounds of 71, 70 and 72, and was the top finisher among the 35 Big South Conference players competing in the tournament.

In addition, Gasperini led the field with 40 pars and birdied nine different holes while leading Radford University to a third-place finish in the 16-team tournament.
