Men's Golf Takes Fifth At Sea Trail Invitational

Sept. 24, 2006

Sunset Beach, N.C. - The Loyola men's golf team followed Saturday's 289 with a solid 292 to place fifth in the 20-team field at the 2006 Sea Trail Invitational. Senior captain Will Shriver led the Greyhounds with an even-par 72 in Sunday's final round from Sunset Beach, N.C.

Shriver's 72 earned him a tournament score of 143 and was his third straight round of par or better. In fact, in six rounds this fall, Shriver has shot two rounds of par to go along with two sub-par efforts.

Loyola's consistent play on Day One continued with more consistent play from Matt Bassler and Blake Furgerson. Both players registered a 73 on Saturday and repeated that performance with a 73 on Sunday.

"The golf course played more difficult today," says Head Coach Tom Beidleman. "Considering the wind and souring weather conditions, I thought we played a good round of golf."

Sophomore Michael Mulieri followed his first round 72 with a 74 while freshman Michael Bassler scored an 81 to round out the Loyola scoring. The Greyhounds will be back in action the second and third of October when they compete in the Joe Agee Invitational in Williamsburg, Va.
