Kelting and Dillistone Collect Weekly Southern Miss SAAC honor

March 28, 2017

HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- Southern Miss golf's Derick Kelting and track's Dana Dillistone have received SAAC Player of the Week honors, as voted on by their peers.

Dillistone broke the Southern Miss school record in the 1500m run with a time of 4:27.39 and won the event. She also currently claims the top spot in Conference USA for that event and has earned multiple academic awards in her Southern Miss career from all-conference to all-district.

The Golden Eagle track and field team is home for the first time of the season Friday and Saturday.

Kelting tied his career-low with a 4-under-par 68 in the final day of the FAU Slomin Autism Invitational on Sunday, helping Southern Miss vault to a fourth-place finish out of 13 teams. It was the team's best finish since September, and that final round was not only the second-best of any team, but also helped the Golden Eagles overcome a seventh-place standing a day prior.

The men's golf team gets back to it on Monday and Tuesday for the Old Waverly Collegiate in West Point, Miss.
