MOUNT VERNON, Ohio - The Mount Vernon Nazarene University men's golf program has signed another key recruit for the 2003-2004 season with the addition of Dan Yost.
Yost, a senior at Keystone High School and a native of LaGrange, Ohio, has decided to further his education and continue his golf career at MVNU. During his senior season, Yost posted a conference average of 37.8 strokes per nine holes and an overall average of 38.3 strokes per nine holes as he led Keystone to its third straight Lorain County Conference title. A four-year varsity performer, Yost was a two-time All-Conference selection and the Most Valuable Player of the conference in 2001.
"I am really looking forward to what Dan will bring to our golf program next season," said MVNU assistant coach Chris Huff, the team's recruiting coordinator. "He will be a good asset to our team. He has had a great high school career and wants to continue that at the next level. He is a good individual who will represent our university in a positive way. Dan is very committed to the game of golf and he loves to practice. I feel that he will fit in well in our program and have an immediate impact next fall."
In addition to his achievements on the golf course, Yost is a member of the Presidents Forum. He is also the president of his church youth group and the president of Keystone's symphonic choir.
"There are several reasons why I chose MVNU," said Yost of his college choice. "I picked it for the spiritual experience because it will be a great place to grow with Christ. They also have a tremendous business program which I will going into."
MVNU finished its 2002 fall season with a 31-3 overall record. The Cougars, who are ranked 23rd in the 2003 NAIA preseason poll, also finished third at the National Christian College Athletic Association National Tournament that was held in Seneca, South Carolina.
