Haile Named PSUAC ‘Golf Coach of the Year’

Matt Haile

The Penn State University Athletic Conference has named Penn College’s Matt Haile as “Golf Coach of the Year” for the 2012 season.  Haile led the Wildcats to one of their strongest showings, with a regular-season championship and a second-place finish at the PSUAC Championships.  This is his first time receiving the honor; Haile has headed the college’s golf team since 2009.  In that span, he has coached five all-conference players and one United States Collegiate Athletic Association All-American.  His teams have consistently finished at the top of the PSUAC standings, with this year’s team having the best results. Haile is no stranger to success: As a golfer on the Penn College team, he was a two-time conference champion.

I was so impressed with your presentation for Chet at the Hall of Fame dinner. It was obvious that your comments about Chet were from your heart You were busy talking, so I didn’t get to talk to you. I am proud of your accomplishments and I know that you have made Chet very, very happy. I was a friend of Chet’s and he impacted my life greatly, too. He was a very special man!! Congratulations again.
