Saint Joseph's rising senior golfer Michael O'Brien has been named to the Division I Ping All-Northeast Region Team, organization officials have announced.
Averaging 72.7 strokes-per-round over 30 rounds this season, O'Brien posted the lowest average by a Hawk in more than a decade as he helped the team to six top-five finishes, highlighted by the team title at the Columbia Invitational. Capturing Atlantic 10 All-Conference accolades after finishing tied for fifth at the conference championship, he helped Saint Joseph's to its best A-10 finish since 2003 as the Hawks placed fourth in the 11-team field.
O'Brien was stellar from the start of the season until the close as he posted 10 top-20 finishes, including the top-five finish at the A-10 Championship and a share of medalist honors at the City 6 Championship. A three-year letterwinner, he is just the third Hawk in program history to earn All-Region honors, joining Jimmy Bea (2009) and Billy Stewart (2004).
