Matthias becomes the 11th Blue Hen in school history to participate in the NCAA Tournament and the second in three years, as Justin Martinson competed in the 2010 Georgia Tech Regional.
Matthias received an automatic bid to the NCAA Regionals after winning the individual title at the Colonial Athletic Association Championships on April 27-29 at the Wilmington Country Club. Matthias finished with a four over par score of 72-68-77-217 on the par 71, 7,043-yard South Course to record a one-shot victory.
