May 12, 2013

Wayne State University senior Eric Johnson has earned the 2013 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Men's Golf "Athlete of the Year" award. Johnson posted the lowest stroke average among the GLIAC's men's golfers this season. Wayne State University rookie Alex LeSerra was named the conference's "Freshman of the Year" while Wayne State University head coach Mike Horn was tabbed as the GLIAC "Coach of the Year". Horn collected his fourth GLIAC "Coach of the Year" honors. He was the 2007 GCAA Division II Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year, and is in his 12th season at Wayne State University. He has led the Warriors to the NCAA Super Regional in nine of the last 10 years, including seven straight. Horn guided the 2010-11 squad to a second-place finish at the GLIAC Championship and a seventh-place in the NCAA Super Regional. Johnson went on to represent WSU at the NCAA D-II Championship. Wayne State qualified for the first time in program history as a team for the NCAA Championship in 2009 after winning the Super Regional title under Horn's guidance.
