RICHMOND, Va. (March 28, 2012) - James Madison's Nicole Sakamoto has been named CAA Women's Golfer of the Week honors after earning medalist honors at the UNCW Lady Seahawk Classic. 

Sakamoto, a senior, posted rounds of 70-70-72 (-4) on the 6,106 yard, par-72 layout at River Landing Golf Course. Her three-round total of 212 tied the Dukes' school record for a 54-hole event, set by former JMU golfer and current Old Dominion head coach Carol Robertson during the 2003-04 season.

It was Sakamoto's third collegiate victory and first since 2010, as well as her fourth top-five and fifth top-10 finish in nine events this year. Sakamoto and the Dukes finished in fifth place of 11 teams in the event.
