Men’s golf adds Trake Carpenter as assistant coach
Prior to his arrival at Marquette, Carpenter was the assistant golf professional at Ivanhoe Club in Mundelein, Illinois. He coordinated tournaments and oversaw day-to-day guest operations on the course. After graduating from Ball State in 2012, Carpenter spent three seasons as an assistant at his alma mater under Mike Fleck.
As a four-year golfer at Ball State, his collegiate highlights included career low round (67) and event scores (209) during his senior year in 2011-12, and he was co-medalist at the Gene Miranda Falcon Invitational. That season, he earned Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar honors and was the recipient of the Ball State Earl Yestingsmeier Student-Athlete Award, given to a graduating men’s golf senior who displays distinguished athletic, academic and community credentials. He earned Academic All-Mid-American Conference honors in 2011 and was named Ball State’s Most Improved Player in 2010.
