For the first time in program history, the Trine University men's golf team is the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Champions after winning five of six fall MIAA rounds, including both rounds of the Fall Final Oct. 4-5 at Forest Akers West in Lansing, Mich.
Trine averaged 292.8 strokes per round, almost nine strokes per round better than second-place Hope.
Trine's Grant Brettnacher became the first MIAA men's golfer to be both the MIAA Most Valuable Golfer and Sportsmanship Award winner in the same season, receiving both honors at the conclusion of Saturday's round at Forest Akers. Brettnacher averaged 72.3 strokes over the six-round season.
Trine will serve as the host of the final two rounds of the 2020 MIAA NCAA Spring Qualifier, while second-place Hope will host the first round of the three-round, four-team event. Kalamazoo and Calvin will round out the four-team spring tournament, with dates to be determined.
