Hope Golfer Nails Hole-In-One At MIAA Jamboree

Hope senior Evan Telzerow became the sixth golfer to record a hole-in-one at an MIAA men's golf tournament on Saturday as he helped lead the Flying Dutchmen to a three-stroke victory over Calvin at the MIAA Jamboree at the Lenawee Country Club in Adrian.

Telzerow used an 8-iron to ace the 157-yard, par-3 9th hole. The ace helped Telzerow share medalist honors for the Jamboree with Trine's Connor Dwyer, with both carding rounds of 72.

It was the first hole-in-one at an MIAA men's golf meet since Calvin's Eric Doezema recorded an ace at Alma's Pine River Country Club in 2010.

Hope Soccer Teams To Host Van Andel Institute Benefit Games

The Hope men’s and women’s soccer teams are teaming later up this month to benefit Purple Community®, Van Andel Institute’s grassroots fundraising program.

A day-night doubleheader at Van Andel Soccer Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 20, will feature women’s and men’s matches and raise funds for cancer and Parkinson’s disease research at Van Andel Institute in Grand Rapids.

The Flying Dutch will play Saint Mary’s in an MIAA women's contest at noon, while the Flying Dutchmen host Adrian in a men's MIAA game at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for non-MIAA students 18 and younger.
