RICHMOND, Va. – Sophomore Adam Ball (Richmond, Va.) and freshman Hanish Nagrani (Welland, Ontario) celebrated the official beginning of spring with a pair of Atlantic 10 Conference awards.

Ball corralled his second A-10 Golfer of the Week honor for his play at the Mission Inn Spring Spectacular at the Mission Inn Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla. March 14-15. At Mission Inn, Ball fired a final-round 67 to earn a share of second place. The VCU sophomore and one-time U.S. Amateur quarterfinalist shot 70-76-67=213 at the 54-hole event to finish 3-under.

In 14 career starts, Ball has five top-5 finishes, including his first collegiate victory at the Wexford Plantation Intercollegiate earlier this spring.
Nagrani, meanwhile, picked up his second A-10 Rookie of the Week award after he placed 23rd at Mission Inn. Nagrani shot 75-75-81=231 and helped lift VCU to a third place finish overall at the tournament.
Ball and Nagrani will return to the tee boxes April 5-6 when they lead VCU to the Irish Creek Intercollegiate at The Club at Irish Creek in Kannapolis, N.C.
