CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Loyola University Maryland sophomore Matt Oshrine has been named the Corvias Patriot League Golfer of the Month for March, making him the recipient of all three of the league's monthly awards this year, as announced by the conference office Thursday.
No other Patriot League golfer has won the award more than twice in their career, while this marks Oshrine's fourth honor.
Oshrine, a Baltimore, Md., native, played in all four tournaments for the Greyhounds this month and won the Middleburg Bank Intercollegiate on March 24 with a 2-under 208, while included a 4-under 66 in the final round. Oshrine, the only player to finish under par in the tournament, tied a 54-hole tournament record for his second win of the season. His performance helped Loyola tie for the overall lead in the 30-team field, but the Greyhounds lost a playoff to Radford for the title.
For the month, Oshrine went under par in six of his 12 rounds, and only shot two over 75, while had at least one under par round in each of his four events. He tied for 12th at the Loyola Golf Invitational sponsored by the Neville Kovacs Group with a 1-over 217 on February 22-24, and had rounds of 68 and 67, while shooting a 4-over 214 to tie for 31st at the Palmetto Invitational on March 8-10. Oshrine opened the Seahawk Intercollegiate this past weekend with a 1-under 71 and finished tied for 39th.
Oshrine has now picked up four golfer of the month honors throughout his career, earning all three awards - September, October and March - this year, in addition to March of last year.
The Greyhounds will have one final tune-up before heading to the Patriot League Championships. Loyola will travel to Lynchburg, Virginia for the Liberty Spring Invitational Friday and Saturday, April 10-11.
