DWU Doubles up

More good news today for the Dakota Wesleyan University men's and women's golf teams. The GPAC announced this morning that Tiger senior Brett Abbotts is the GPAC Men's Golfer-of-the-Week and junior Kelli Baseley is the Women's Golfer-of-the-Week.

After doing some research on the GPAC site, a team has only swept men's and women's golfer-of-the-week honors three times since the weekly awards began, and all three times that school has been ... you guessed it ... Dakota Wesleyan. Also, the last time it happened, Abbotts was the men's winner.

Congrats to both golfers for their awards. If you want to read more click here for the men's golf page and here for the women's golf page. The stories should be on our site sometime this afternoon. Both had some great things to say about how they played so well last week to earn the GPAC awards.

Hemenway a Hall-of-Famer

More congratulations are in order for DWU head men's basketball coach John Hemenway. This weekend, Hemenway will be inducted into the Coyote Sports Hall of Fame for his outstanding basketball career at the University of South Dakota.

Hemenway was a two-time All-Conference performer and an All-Region selection for the Coyotes. A point guard, Hemenway is still fourth on the school's career assists list. For those of you who know what kind of coach Hemenway is, it probably doesn't surprise you at all that he was also proficient at running an offense on the floor at the college level as well.

Hemenway will be honored at a reception Saturday morning in Vermillion, and again during a halftime ceremony of the Coyotes' football game that afternoon.
