RICHMOND, Ind. - Two more Greenfield-Central High School golfers have joined the Indiana University East golf program.
Conner Pope, currently a senior at Greenfield-Central, and 2010 Greenfield-Central graduate Jordan Hiner have signed letters of intent to play golf for the Red Wolves starting with the 2011-12 season.
Red Wolves coach Von Ebeling announced the signings May 24.
Pope was MVP of the Greenfield-Central boys golf team as a junior. He has career-best scores of 83 for 18 holes and 37 for nine holes.
"I'm eager for Conner to bring his competitive nature to our golf program," Ebeling said. "He is passionate about the sport. If he can sustain his drive to be the best then he will make the transition to the next level.
"His spring scores are looking pretty good at this point, but Conner will have to be demanding of himself and push his new teammates this coming fall."
Hiner has a career-low of 82 for 18 holes.
"Jordan will be a year older than the other freshman recruits, and the team will need him to be a leader like he was on the Greenfield-Central team," Ebeling said.
"I'm looking for him to come in and do the extra little things to help build some chemistry on this team."
Conner is the son of Jeff and Lori Pope.
He plans to major in business.
"I love the small campus and knowing everyone," Pope said. "I really like that I can continue my golf career at the next level."
Hiner is the son of Eric and Christy Hiner.
He plans to major in biology.
"I chose IU East for golf and because my friends are here," Hiner said.
Holly Miller, another Greenfield-Central product, was an all-conference player for the IU East women's golf program this past spring.
IU East is an NAIA program. The Red Wolves have produced all-conference golfers every year since joining the NAIA in 2007.
