Since taking over the helm of Loyola's golf program in August of 2010, head coach Chris Baloga has led the Greyhounds to back-to-back MAAC Championship, stretching Loyola's win streak to five-straight conference titles.
The fourth individual in nearly four decades to lead Loyola's tradition-rich golf program, Baloga has guided the Greyhounds to success not just on the course, but in the classroom as well.
In 2012, then-seniors Pat McCormick and Ryan McCarthy became the first pair of golfers to earn Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar honors in the same season. McCormick graduated as a two-time Academic All-American that year, while McCarthy concluded his career as just the second Greyhound to win four MAAC titles.
Baloga also led Jay Mulieri to a successful senior campaign in 2012. Baloga's first GCAA Division I Ping All-Region Team honoree, Mulieri swept all four MAAC Player of the Month awards as a senior and then combined with his older brother Michael to become the first pair of siblings to win the MAAC individual title. In addition, his 71.83 stroke average in set a new school record that year.
As a team, Baloga's 2012 squad produced the best scoring average in program history with an average score of 294.8. The squad also combined to break the MAAC Tournament record by nine strokes, finishing with a team score of 4-over 868.
An accomplished amateur golfer, Baloga led the Maryland Player of the Year rankings in 2010 and 2011 after finishing second in 2009, third in 2008 and fourth in 2012. In August of 2011, Baloga traveled to Chambers Bay Golf Course in Washington to play in the United States Amateur Championship.
The Maryland State Golf Team also selected Baloga to play for Maryland at the USGA Men's State Team Championship in 2009, 2010 and 2012, but he was only able to compete in 2009.
In addition to his national amateur competition, Baloga has won several amateur titles around the region. Baloga took first place at the 2010 and 2012 Washington Metropolitan Mid-Amateur Championship, the 2009 Baltimore City Amateur Championship, the 2008 and 2011 Maryland Amateur Stroke Play Championship and the 2008 Middle Atlantic Amateur Championship. He also qualified for U.S. Open sectional qualifying for the past four years and made the cut for match play at the Maryland Amateur six times.
A former Division I student-athlete, Baloga played college golf for Towson University, where he earned Colonial Athletic Association Scholar Athlete honors all four years and served as a co-captain his senior year.
Baloga resides in Towson with his wife, Marci, and son, Hudson.
