CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - Loyola University Maryland finished one shot behind a Big Ten school and Army's Peter Kim had the top finish by a Patriot League individual qualifier since 2004 as both completed their competition at the NCAA Men's Golf Regionals on Saturday.

The Greyhounds competed at the Columbia Regional, and finished in 13th place out of 14 teams in the field. Loyola shot an 888 over the 54-hole, three-day tournament, placing 40 strokes ahead of Bryant and just one behind Ohio State for 12th place. The Greyhounds came just four shots away from a top-ten finish. Brendan Lemp led Loyola with an even-par 216 to finish in a tie for 26th place in the field, while Matt Oshrine also recorded a top-50 finish.

Army's Peter Kim played in the San Antonio Regional, and finished with a five-over 221 to tie for 31st place in the tournament. It was the highest finish by an individual qualifier out of the Patriot League since Navy's Billy Hurley tied for 14th in the regionals in 2004.

Loyola earned the automatic berth to the NCAA Regionals by winning the Patriot League title on April 27, while Kim won the individual medalist title at the League Championship to qualify for the regionals.
