PASADENA, Calif. – Claremont-Mudd-Scripps junior men's golfer Bradley Shigezawa has been selected as the SCIAC Male Athlete of the Week for the week of March 11 after he finished tied for first at the Collegiate Invitational in Jekyll Island, Ga. It is the third time that a CMS spring student-athlete has been named Athlete of the Week this season and first male student-athlete to be selected.

A 2012 All-American, Shigezawa shot a 1-over 217 for the three-day tournament at the par-72 Pine Lakes Golf Course. The Honolulu, Hawaii native shot rounds of 71, 72 and 74. His first round score of 1-under, 71 was the third lowest score of the weekend out of a field of 150 golfers. Shigezawa has had the top score for CMS in each of its three tournaments this spring.
