CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Loyola University Maryland sophomore Matt Oshrine became the first-ever Patriot League golfer to sweep the league's monthly awards, being named the Corvias Patriot League Golfer of the Month for April, as announced Thursday.
Oshrine, already the league's first golfer to pick up three monthly accolades throughout their career, was named the recipient of the award for October, November and March this year. He also earned last year's honor for March, giving him five monthly awards for his career.
The Baltimore native led the Greyhounds to their eighth-straight conference title at the Patriot League Championships this past weekend, earning medalist honors with a 1-under 215 through the three rounds. Oshrine entered the final round one stroke shy of the leader, but finished strong to pick up his third individual title this season and Patriot League Golfer of the Year honors, as well.
Earlier this month, he finished 19th out of 94 at the Liberty Invitational, putting together round scores of 72, 68 and 78, respectively, for a 3-over 219.
Through the two tournaments in April, Oshrine shot four of six rounds at par or better.
Oshrine's stroke average of 71.42 is the best at Loyola since at least 1994. He's competed in all 11 tournaments this year and tied the school record with three individual wins - the Doc Gimmler, the Middleburg Bank Intercollegiate and the Patriot League Championships. His 16-under 192 (64-65-65) at the Doc Gimmler broke the program's 54-hole school record, and his 2-under 207 (70-72-66) tied the Middleburg Bank Intercollegiate's 54-hole tournament record.
Oshrine and the Greyhounds will learn their NCAA Regional fate on Monday, May 4, when the Golf Channel airs the selection show at 10 a.m.
