The Hope College men’s golf team traveled to the Battle Creek Country Club this past weekend to participate in the MIAA Championships. The rain halted play on Saturday, shortening the expected 108- hole MIAA season, but the Dutchmen shone through the weather.
Josh Gibson (’19) of Hope won the individual league title for the second year in a row, while teammate Daniel Settecerri (’20) took fourth in the individual standings. Both earned first-team all-MIAA honors.
The team took second overall with a total of 1,461 strokes on the season, just eight strokes behind the champions from Calvin College.
Hope golfers Kade Hoeksema (’18), Andrew Goble (’19) and Ben Kramer (’19) earned 2nd team all-MIAA honors as well.
With this performance, Hope has earned a spot in the NCAA Division III Championship qualifier in the spring, which Hope and Calvin will co-host.
