The Malvern Community gathered in the Quad to celebrate the Malvern Prep Golf team capturing the PAISAA State Championship title. Under the coaching of Mr. Gary Duda ’88 P’26, Mr. Myles Huf, and Mr. Joe Redican ’60 P’88, the team “blew the field away at the PAISAA Championships last Monday (October 30, 2023) winning by eight strokes,” shared Mr. Jim Stewart ‘86, Head of Athletics.
The team finished the season with a record of 48-9-2. Despite winning the State Championship the team placed third overall in league play. All league schools participate in the PAISAA championship. Coach Duda thanked the crowd and the team and shared, “We had a great year and we always want to win… winning the PAISAA Championship is really hard [to win].” He continued, “I am certainly proud of my guys and I congratulate them. We are proud to share this championship with our school community.”
One of the team’s captains, Shane Powelson ’24, addressed the crowd, “Through my time here, this program has grown. As a senior departing, I wish you guys all of the best in the future.” He closed by thanking the school and his peers for the support the community has shown the team.
