The Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference is pleased to announce that his coaching peers have selected Bill Penny, Head Coach of the University of Alberta-Augustana Campus Vikings Golf team, as the 2015-2016 Coach of the Year. The award was presented to Coach Penny October 3rd at the Conference Championships in Medicine Hat.

Greg Ryan Director of Athletics and Campus Recreation at Augustana commented “Coach Penny has been the catalyst for rise of collegiate Golf on this campus.  This is most apparent in the number of local golfers (6) that make up the eight-man roster. This alone is a testimony to his teaching skills and leadership. I am so pleased that Bill has been recognized in this fashion”.
