SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - UC Santa Barbara sophomore Matt Moomjian (La Mesa, Calif./Patrick Henry HS) earned Big West Men's Golfer of the Month honors for November following a top-10 performance. 

Moomjian captured his first career award after shooting a 5-under 208 at the Saint Mary's Invitational in Pebble Beach, Calif.  He shot all three rounds at or under par, including a 4-under 67 in the final round to help the Gauchos move from 16th to 14th place in the final team standings. 

He shot 71 and 70 over the first two rounds, tying for eighth overall in the 100-player field.

"I am proud of Matt and really happy for him," said UCSB head coach Steve Lass. "He played really well in the fall and I look forward to seeing him evolve in the winter and spring."

The Gauchos return to action on Jan. 29-30 at The Waves Challenge at the Saticoy Golf Course in Somis, Calif. The tournament is hosted by Pepperdine.
