College hires new golf coach

March 24, 2014

Trinity Athletic Director Matt Koenigs announced today that Chet Hovde has been hired as the college’s men’s and women’s golf coach.

Hovde has been the women’s basketball coach at Everett Community College for the last 30 years, where he has also been teaching all of the golf PE classes for nearly as long. Hovde will continue to coach his Trojan team, who play during the winter sport season. Trinity golfers participate in both the fall and spring seasons, enabling Hovde to coach both programs with no interference.

“Coach Hovde is exactly what we were looking for in our Golf hire. I worked along side Chet for many years at Everett Community College,” said Koenigs.

“He is a Christian who is proven recruiter and a great coach who genuinely cares about his athletes,” Koenigs said.
