MOUNT VERNON, Ohio - The Mount Vernon Nazarene University men’s golf team has landed a key recruit for the 2005-2006 season with the addition of Brady Liette.
Liette, a native of Tipp City, Ohio, was a two-time Metro-Buckeye Conference First Team selection and the conference Player of the Year as a senior in 2004 at Troy Christian High School. He holds the school record for nine holes by twice shooting 35, and he set the 18-hole school record in 2004 with a 76. He also holds the single-season school record for best average at 39.7.
"Brady will be a great asset for our team,” said MVNU head coach Chris Huff. "I was so impressed with his work ethic over the past couple of years. He has a desire to get better every day. He has been the top golfer on his high school team for four years. His leadership role will help us as a team.”
"Brady is also a great Christian young man who will represent MVNU in a positive way,” Huff added. "I am so excited to see what impact he will make in our program. He has many goals, and I feel that he will succeed in them because he is the kind of player who leaves everything on the course.”
In addition to playing golf, Liette played soccer at Troy Christian. He was also involved in student government for four years, and he was the technical director for the high school musical.
"There are several reasons why I chose MVNU,” said Liette of his college choice. "MVNU is close enough to home to be close to my family. I also liked Coach Huff the most out of any of the college coaches that I came in contact with, and MVNU has an excellent business program.”
MVNU finished the 2003-2004 season with a 100-29 overall record. The Cougars were also ranked as high as 15th in the NAIA National poll during the year - the program’s highest ranking ever. The team graduated five players from last year’s squad including four of the top five players. MVNU will begin the spring portion of its 2004-2005 schedule with a week of practice rounds in Santee, South Carolina, on March 18-23.
