NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Westminster College has named Matt Torrence ('93) its new head men's golf coach. Torrence, a former Titan golfer, has served as the head boys' golf coach at Hampton High School for the past 10 years.
"I'm honored to be selected as the next golf coach at Westminster," Torrence said. "I'm very excited about the opportunity and anxious to get back and start preparing for the upcoming season."
Westminster Athletic Director Jim Dafler noted, "His experience playing and coaching golf, his knowledge of high school golf in the western Pennsylvania area, and his connection with Westminster as a former Titan student-athlete makes him a very good hire for our position."
