MENíS GOLF INKS THREE TO NLIS
WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ – Head Coach Dennis Shea has announced the addition of Glen-Michael Mihavetz (Montrose, CO/Montrose), Ron Robinson (Hatfield, PA/North Penn) and Jimmy Criscione (Paramus, NJ/Oradell) as the trio all signed National Letters of Intent to compete for the Hawks beginning in the fall of 2017.
“I'm excited about our recent signings of three outstanding golfers for the 2017 season,” commented Shea, now in his 24th season. “All three are coming off very successful high school golf careers as well as having great success in amateur events the past two years. I look forward to their arrival and competing for the Monmouth Hawks.”
Hailing from Montrose, Colorado, Mihavetz helped guide the Indians of Montrose High School to a conference championship and a state runner-up finish over his four years. Named the Team MVP, Mihavetz, who claimed seven individual first-place finishes, was tabbed a three-time all-league golfer, while landing two all-state accolades. The future business major carded a 70.5 stroke average during his senior campaign and landed in the top-10 in the state championship during his last two years.
Robinson led the Knights of North Penn High School to back-to-back 12-win seasons and a trio of top-three finishes in the league championships. The
school’s new scoring average record holder was a three-time All-Suburban 1 League First Team honoree. The co-MPV landed in the top-15 in the 2016 Pennsylvania State Championship, while claiming four top finishes on the Philadelphia Junior Tour
in amateur play. The Hatfield, PA native won the 2016 Golf Association of Philadelphia Harry Hammond Award which is presented to the player with the lowest aggregate score in the Junior Boys' Championship qualifying round, the Jock MacKenzie round and the two rounds of the Christman Cup.
A three-time first team all-conference performer, Criscione has paced the Crusaders of Bergen Catholic High School to three Big North Conference, County and State titles, while being lauded as the Team of the Year for three-straight seasons. Criscione has also been tabbed all-country and
All-North Jersey on three occasions, while adding All-State honors to his resume in 2016 after posting a fourth place result in the New Jersey State Tournament. The future Hawk has also seen success in amateur play, earning the IMG Junior Golf Tour-Berkshire Valley Championship and qualified for the 114th NJSGA Amateur Championship, 98th Met Junior Championship and Bergen County Amateur Championship. The Paramus native posted a fifth place finish at the AJGA Junior All-Star at Fox Meadow.
Shea and the Hawks wrapped up the fall slate in October and resume the season in March of 2017.
