Shriver Leads Greyhound Charge On Day One At Sea Trail Invitational

Sept. 23, 2006

Sunset Beach, N.C. - Senior captain Will Shriver fired a one-under 71 to get the Greyhounds off to a great start at the Sea Trail Invitational in Sunset Beach, N.C. As a team, Loyola finished the day one-over par, scorching the course for a 289.

"This is a tremendous start to this event," says Loyola Head Coach Tom Beidleman. "We played an excellent team round of golf today."

The Greyhounds played a very consistent round at Sea Trail Resort, with their four scorers a combined two strokes apart. Sophomore Michael Mulieri was even par for the day (72), as junior Matt Bassler and sophomore Blake Furgerson each posted one-over par rounds of 73.

Freshman Michael Bassler, brother of junior Matt Bassler, shot an 80 in his first round of college golf to round out the Loyola scoring.

The Greyhounds are in third place heading into Sunday's final round. James Madison leads the field with a four-under par 284 while Western Carolina is alone in second at 286.
