“We’re excited to have Jack as our Interim Head Men’s and Women’s Golf Coach. Having played at Iowa Lakes, Jack understands Iowa Lakes and junior college golf. He has great knowledge of golf to share with our student-athletes. We have a strong returning group of students while adding some great new golfers, and Jack already has a solid relationship with the group.
