|Jen Trewick named new head women's golf coach
WINONA, Minn. The name's the same, but this "Trewick" won't be roaming the sidelines of any Saint Mary's University men's basketball games.
Instead, Jen Trewick will be prowling golf course's greens and fairways as the Cardinals' new head women's golf coach.
Trewick, whose husband, Mike, is the Cardinals' head men's basketball coach, takes over for Shawn Stimmel, who left SMU to accept a coaching position at Mount Mercy College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
"I'm very excited about the opportunity to work with the women's golf team," said Trewick, a two-time national qualifier during her playing days at Luther. "I look forward to working with all the members of the team. Early on, our goals will be to improve on all aspects of their game swing, course management and mental preparation. I think all three play a critical role in putting a great round of golf together."
And Trewick is no stranger to great rounds of golf.
During her playing days at Luther, Trewick helped guide the Norse to back-to-back fifth-place finishes in the national tournament, while also earning all-conference honors her senior year.
"It's' exciting to add Jen Trewick to our coaching staff," said SMU athletic director Nikki Fennern. "Having played at the collegiate level, Jen understands the components for success in golf and will be a good teacher of the game for our student-athletes."
