A trio of Dakota Wesleyan golfers were honored with the announcement of the Great Plains Athletic Conference’s all-conference golf teams on Friday.

DWU senior and Mitchell native Cade Carpenter was the lone all-GPAC selection on the men’s side and was joined by fellow senior Megan Hinker and junior Erin Moncur from the DWU women’s team.

Carpenter tied for 10th place at the weather-shortened 2022 GPAC championships with a total score of 224 strokes, as the Tigers finished eighth in the final standings.

Hinker, of Lennox, and Moncur, of Miller, helped the Tigers to a second-place finish as a team at the women’s championships. With a score of 319 strokes, Hinker finished fourth overall in the competition, as Moncur followed with 334 strokes, good for eighth place overall.

Morningside swept the conference golfer of the year honors, with Sam Storey and Mason Weeks earning co-honors on the men's side and Sofia Castelan earning the distinction on the women's side.


Midland's Nick Swaney was named men’s golf coach of the year, with Morningside's Nick Wanderscheid receiving women's coach of the year recognition.
