SARASOTA, Fla. - Two Loyola University Maryland golfers - sophomore Matt Oshrine and freshman Jeremy Wall - were named to the Division I PING All-Northwest Region Team, as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).
Oshrine picks up his second all-region honor after putting together one of the finest individual seasons for a Greyhound in program history. A finance major with a 3.902 cumulative grade-point average, Oshrine was named the Corvias Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year for golf after leading Loyola to its second-straight Patriot League title by earning medalist honors at the championship event. He also swept all four monthly awards (October, November, March and April) that the league gives out and was named the Patriot League Most Outstanding Golfer.
Throughout the year, the Baltimore, Maryland native won three individual titles to tie the school record for wins in a season: winning the Doc Gimmler, Middleburg Bank Intercollegiate and the Patriot League Championships. At the season-opening Doc Gimmler, Oshrine broke the program's 54-hole tournament record, shooting 16-under 192 (64-65-65). At Middleburg Bank, he was the lone player to finish under par, tying the 54-hole tournament record with a 2-under 208 (70-72-66). He then led the Greyhounds to their eighth-straight conference title by again finishing as the only player under par, shooting a 1-under 215 (72-70-73).
For the season, Oshrine led the Greyhounds with a 71.72 stroke average and shot at least one round under par through all 10 regular-season tournaments, finishing the year with 19 of 36 rounds at par-or-better.
Wall, a rookie from Brielle, New Jersey, competed in nine of the 12 tournaments this year and was one of six freshmen on the all-region team. He also earned first-team All-Patriot League honors after finishing runner-up, and one stroke behind Oshrine, with an even 216 (78-66-72) at the championship event.
For the season, Wall finished second on the team with a 73.89 stroke average. He shot eight of 27 rounds at par or better, including the second round of his NCAA Championships debut (), where he finished the Chapel Hill Regional tied for 55th overall at 7-over 223. Wall's best round was a 6-under 66, shot at the Patriot League Championships.
