Two Golfers Receive All-Region Honors

Two members of the Hope College men's golf team have been named to the Division III PING Great Lakes all-region team of the Golf Coaches Association of America.

Senior Chris Ansel of Zeeland (Zeeland East HS) and junior Nick Campbell of Saline (Saline HS) are among 12 honorees from NCAA Division III teams in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Hope is one of only two schools to have two honorees.

Both Ansel and Campbell received Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) all-conference first team honors this year. Ansel was the MIAA medalist averaging 72.5 strokes over eight conference tournaments. Nick Campbell averaged 74.9 strokes in conference play.

The Flying Dutchmen, coached by Bob Ebels, finished third in the MIAA standings.
