Greyhounds Place Sixth At Towson Golf Invitational

Sept. 19, 2006

Baltimore, Md. - Senior Will Shriver scored a 71 in Tuesday's final round of the Towson Invitational as the Greyhounds posted a team score of 301 at Musket Ridge Golf Club. Loyola's two-day team total of 596 was good enough for sixth place among the 13 participating schools.

Battling high winds and morning showers, the field saw higher scores on Day Two. Shriver, who posted a 74 on Monday, however, came back with a one-under 71 to finish with a 36-hole score of 145. The senior captain tied teammate Michael Mulieri, who also shots rounds of 71 and 74. Mulieri's 71 came on Monday.

Junior Matt Bassler tied for 19th overall with his 149, scoring a 74 on Monday and 75 on Tuesday. Sean Curtin finished at 157 while Nick Brassill shot a tournament score of 165.

Boston College held its Day One lead and won the tournament with a 577. St. Joseph's placed second, while Towson, George Mason and Bethune-Cookman rounded out the Top-5. Towson's Jeff Castle won medalist honors, edging out Boston College's Jan Prokop by one stroke.

Loyola has a quick turnaround, playing in the Sea Trail Invitational at Sunset Beach, N.C. this Saturday and Sunday.
