Scott Erling Named Big Sky Conference Coach of the Year
FARMINGTON, Utah – Following his team’s run to claim the 2022 Big Sky Conference Men’s Golf Championship in Scottsdale, Arizona, Weber State’s Scott Erling has been named Men’s Golf Coach of the Year the league office announced today.
The Wildcats won the league title by a single stroke, carding a 286 as a team in the final round of play. They outpaced Northern Colorado down the stretch of an incredibly tight tournament.
WSU also featured the league’s individual champion, as Reese Fisher finished play on top of the leaderboard by shooting a 4-under 206, including a 64 in the second round.
The squad from Ogden will be continuing their 2022 campaign in Stockton, California at NCAA Regional competition with a chance to qualify for the NCAA National Championships.
Erling, who serves as the Director of Golf for Weber State, started coaching with the Wildcats in January of 2012. He was a four-year letterwinner at Utah State University as a collegiate athlete.
This is Erling’s first Big Sky Men’s Golf Coach of the Year honor, and the first for Weber State since the league brought back the sport. WSU’s last men’s golf coach of the year was in 2002 when Dave Kearl earned the title.
