MEN'S GOLF INKS WATERFORD KETTERING HIGH SCHOOL ALL-STATER
Greg Meisner To Join The Bulldogs Next Fall
Ferris State head men's golf coach Brad Bedortha has announced the signing of prep standout Greg Meisner (Waterford/Kettering) to a National Letter of Intent to attend and play men's golf at Ferris State beginning with the 2008 fall season.
Meisner will come to FSU with a list of impressive credentials at Waterford (Mich.) Kettering High School, which includes garnering Division I All-State honors last season during his junior year. The 2006 All-Oakland County First-Team pick and team's Most Valuable Player helped lead the Captains under head coach Scott Woodhull to both regional and conference championship titles in the 2006 fall season as a result of averaging 74.7 strokes per round.
"Greg had an outstanding summer playing and should be able to set right into the collegiate level and compete," Bedortha said. "With the change in the high school seasons this year, I believe that he was overlooked by a lot of college coaches. He has the game and the ability to make an immediate impact on our team."
A three-time (2004-06) All-Oakland Activities Association (OAA) performer, the 5-11 Meisner posted a 77.0 stroke average as a sophomore in 2005 after registering a 79.0 average in 2004 during his freshman year.
Meisner, who swings right-handed, is a three-year (2004-07) varsity letterwinner in golf and is currently midst his fourth (2005-08) season as a member of WKHS' varsity ice hockey team.
The son of Ralph and Karen Meisner of Waterford, Mich., Greg plans to major in accounting at Ferris State.
Ferris State concluded the 2007 fall season with seven top-10 place finishes, which included finishing among the top three in three tournaments. The Bulldogs earned second-place honors at the 2007 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Men's Golf Championships (10/8-9) in Findlay, Ohio.
