Baltimore, Md. - Junior Michael Mulieri has been named the MAAC Golfer of the Month after two April tournaments in which he earned two top three finishes, including a medalist performance. Mulieri, Loyola's top scorer this spring, has received every MAAC Golfer of the Month honor this season.
In the first tournament of the month, the LaCrosse Homes Collegiate, Mulieri took first place among all individuals. He fired a final round 69 and a tournament score of 144 to give the Greyhounds a fourth-place finish in the 19-team event.
Mulieri then shot rounds of 72-73-71 at the Golden Fox Invitational, taking third overall and helping Loyola to a runner-up finish in the tournament last weekend. Overall, Mulieri's stroke average for the month was an even-par 72.
Mulieri and the Greyhounds now set the sights on the MAAC Championship. Loyola is the top seed entering this weekend's tournament in Orlando, Fla. The winner of the MAAC Championship earns an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
