Covenant Promotes Tom Schreiner to Head Golf Coach

Wednesday, April 12, 2006

Covenant College has promoted well-known Chattanooga golfer, Tom Schreiner, from assistant coach to head golf coach, replacing former head coach John Conrad. Conrad, who started the new golf program two years ago, left his position to accept an
employment opportunity outside the college that prevented him from
continuing to coach. The Scots are in their second year competing as a
varsity program.

"I am excited about coaching golf at the collegiate level. This has
been a dream of mine for many years. I have been a part of a couple of
middle school and high school programs and have enjoyed it very much,"
said Schreiner. "I am eager to be a part of the learning process that
these golfers will go through taking them from a primary understanding
of the game of golf to a much higher and demanding level. I anticipate
that it will be very rewarding for myself, and hopefully for the players
as well."

He is also very excited about the bright future of the growing program,
"I am so proud to be associated with this program and look forward to
providing a top quality golf program that will enhance the educational
and spiritual experience of our student athletes."

Schreiner has developed a reputation as one of the top amateur golfers
in the area, and has worked with the team in an assistant's role for the
past two years. He is also the Director of Auxiliary Services at
Covenant College overseeing a number of programs for the college,
including food services, summer conferences, and special events.

In 2002, Schreiner was the Bear Trace Invitational Champion and then he
had a huge 2003 season as he was the Chattanooga Metro Champion,
Brainerd Invitational Champion, Chattanooga Tournament Players Champion,
and then culminated the unbelievable year by being named the Player of
the Year by the Chattanooga Tournament Players Series.

Schreiner played varsity baseball and golf for Tennessee Temple
University from 1980 to 1984, and played golf under the tutelage of Dave
Ragan, a former PGA tour player and Ryder Cup team member. He serves as
a Ruling Elder in the Presbyterian Church of America at Covenant
Presbyterian Church in Chattanooga.

"We appreciate all that John Conrad did in starting our golf program,
and are very fortunate to have such an outstanding replacement in our
program, like Tom Schreiner," said Covenant's Director of Athletics Roy
Heintz. "With Tom working on campus, it gives us a coach that can invest
a lot of time in the lives of our golfers, helping them grow spiritually
and excel academically. He is such a great teacher on the golf course,
and does a great job with players' games, course management, and the
mental aspects of the game. He will also do a great job in recruiting,
as we continue to try to build a program that will compete for
conference and regional championships, with an eye on national
tournament participation annually."
