HPU golf teeing up

by Derek Clarkston, Sports editor

Men’s and women’s golf at HPU is now a reality, and new Head Coach Mark Kalikikane is ready to tee off the new season.

 
 

Kalikikane, though, will have to wait till the 2004-2005 school year to officially compete at the NCAA II level, since this year’s Sea Warrior’s golf team will be considered a competitive club.

“ Our golf programs are starting out as a club sport this year with the intention of going to intercollegiate status next year,” said Russell Dung, HPU’s athletic director. “We thought that if we start the program early, we can at least get the coach on board and the foundation set up to make the transition a little bit easier.

“ The main thing right now is getting my team together,” said Kalikikane. “Personally, I’m glad we are not competing this year, so it gives us time to gel together as a team.”

Dung, who is in his second year as the school’s Athletic Director, is looking forward to seeing what Kalikikane can do with this program. “Who knows, the golf program may build into something really big,” Dung said.
