BETHPAGE, New York - Loyola University Maryland sophomore golfer Matt Oshrine finished St. John’s Doc Gimmler with a new 54-hole school record Saturday afternoon, shooting a 16-under 192 to win his first-ever collegiate tournament.
Oshrine led the way the entire tournament, shooting a 6-under 64 through the first round before finishing with a pair of 5-under 65s to run away with the title, as he held a six-stroke lead over the runner up, St. Thomas Aquinas’ Kai Rastetter (10-under 200). Oshrine becomes the first Greyhound to win a tournament since Jay Mulieri won the MAAC Championship in 2012.
