Steve Rehner Named Golf Coach
Wilmore, Ky. - Asbury Athletics has named Steve Rehner as head coach of the revitalized Golf program. Rehner will start immediately to recruit both male and female student-athletes for the 2010-2011 season.
Asbury will compete in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (KIAC) and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Rehner will also work toward the overall development of the program including lining up courses for the team to practice on and start scheduling.
"I am very excited to have the opportunity to start this program," Rehner said. "I have always loved Asbury; it's been such a big part of what I've done in my life. I look forward to recruiting and encouraging kids to be a part of Asbury as they get their education and play the sport they love."
A 1979 graduate of Asbury, Rehner was part of the soccer and track and field teams during his time on campus. He still holds the school record for pole vault.
"Steve is an avid golfer with great connections both on the local and state levels. He will be a great asset to the program as it's built from the ground up," Athletic Director Gary Kempf said. "He has a great knowledge of Asbury, as both an institution and athletically, and we are thrilled to have him on board."
Rehner's three oldest children have all attended Asbury, Emily ('09), Daniel ('11), and Jonathan ('13), all of whom have played soccer. His youngest daughter Allison will start at Asbury in the Fall of 2010. Rehner currently lives in Wilmore with his wife, Pam.
