Mohawk Valley Community College scored a hole-in-one with the hiring of Ruth A. Weydig as the new head coach for the co-ed golf team.
Weydig brings more than 20 years experience to the position which includes having been the assistant golf pro at the Skenandoa Club in Clinton since 2003. She has also been tournament director and administrator for the Central New York PGA which included overseeing the growth of more than 48 tournaments.
But her real strength lies in the success she achieved as a high school girls golf coach, where she provided basic and advance instruction that resulted in dramatic improvement in the performance of the team members in the Oneida and Whitesboro school districts.
Weydig, a native of Central New York and graduate of Vernon-Verona-Sherrill High School, takes the reins from Gary Broadhurst, Associate Dean of Athletics and Physical Education at MVCC. Under the direction of Broadhurst, MVCC's golf team finished the 2008-2009 season with a 56-31 record to place second at the NJCAA Region III Tournament and qualify for the National Championships. At the nationals, MVCC finished eighth.
