For the second season in a row, Hope College’s Winton Munch has earned men’s golf Most Valuable Player honors in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
Munch, who was the season medalist with an average round of 73.9, headlined this year’s All-MIAA men’s golf team that was announced at the conclusion of Tuesday’s final season Jamboree, in which Hope claimed the season championship.
Munch is the third Hope golfer to be MIAA medalist and MIAA MVP in consecutive seasons. He follows Steven Strock (2008-09) and Eric Wohlfield (1998-99).
It is the 22nd time all-time a Hope golfer has been MIAA medalist and the 18th time a Hope golfer has been league MVP.
The Flying Dutchmen placed three players on the first team, while Trine, Adrian and Calvin each had one.
