Gerstacker Students Koaches, Merritt Named All-America Scholars in Men's Golf
Albion College placed Brent Koaches (left) and Scott Merritt on the list of NCAA Division III Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars. Merritt graduated earlier in May after majoring in economics and management with a Gerstacker Institute concentration. Koaches, an E&M major with an emphasis in accounting as well as a Gerstacker concentration, completed his junior year at Albion.
Twenty-three golfers from D-III gained the honor and Albion was the lone Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association program to produce All-America Scholars.
“Scott and Brent set an example for everyone else on the roster,” Albion coach Jordan Rich said.
Seniors Rewarded for Mentoring Local Youth

The highlight of the week for many children at Albion's Harrington Elementary School is the one-hour visit by their mentor, who happens to be a student from Albion College. Two senior Gerstacker students who are also members of the men's basketball program – Bob Wernet and Sean Hendon (pictured with teammate Luke Walker) – were among 25 Albion students who recently received Michigan Campus Compact Heart and Soul awards for their dedication to community service. They were also among the recipients of the Jessie Longhurst Rotary Service Award.
The mentorship program, now known as Jessie's Gift in memory of the 2002 Albion High School graduate and former Albion College student-athlete, was developed and is currently run by Peg Turner, the wife of former Albion men's basketball coach Mike Turner.
