WILSON NAMED HEAD COACH AT LBSU
Michael Wilson was named the new head men's golf coach this past summer, replacing Mickey Yokoi who retired after five years at LBSU.  Wilson became the 11th head men's golf coach at the Beach, after spending the past three seasons as an assistant coach at the University of Washington.  While at Washington, Wilson helped the Huskies improve their finish at the Pac-12 Championships in each of his three seasons, most recently tying for third place in 2016-17 as Wilson managed the team while head coach Alan Murray was home for the birth of his child.  In each of his three seasons, Wilson helped Washington reach the NCAA Regionals, and the Huskies made an NCAA Championship appearance in 2015, finishing tied for 15th while Cheng-Tsung Pan finished as the individual runner-up.
