Noah Goldman Named Finalist For GCAA Assistant Coach Award
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Noah Goldman was named a finalist for the 2021 Jan Strickland Outstanding Assistant Coach Award as selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).
The Strickland Award is presented to the NCAA Division I, II, III, NAIA, or NJCAA assistant coach that, among other things, has excelled in working with their student-athletes both on the course and in the classroom.
The other finalists are Oklahoma's Bill Allcorn, Utah's Chance Cain and Pepperdine's Blaine Woodruff.
Head coach Jon Reehoorn and Goldman helped lead Oregon State to one of the best seasons in program history. The Beavers finished in a tie for second place at the NCAA Albuquerque Regional and advanced to nationals for the first time since 2010 and just the fourth time since 1967.
Shawn Lu was selected to the All-Pac-12 First Team and Spencer Tibbits was named to the All-Pac-12 Second Team. It's the first time two Beavers have received all-conference recognition in the same year since 2010 when Diego Velasquez made the first team and Mike Barry was selected to the second team.
The team also excelled in the classroom, posting a 3.49 GPA in the spring term.
