ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich.- On Wednesday, June 27, Rochester College Head Golf Coach Clayton Bissett announced the signing of Shane Kesthely.
Kesthely will hit the links this fall with the Warriors after golfing for Oakland Community College under head coach Rick Coatta. While at OCC, Kesthely led the Raiders to a 2012 MCCHA Eastern Conference Championship as well as a 2012 MCCHA State Championship. He helped the Raiders to eight consecutive tournament championship titles and the number 10 spot in the national rankings.
Individually, Kesthely finished the season with a 77 scoring average and qualified for individual Junior College Nationals shooting a 78, 76, and 68.
Kesthely enjoyed a stellar prep career at Farmington High School where he was a two-time All-Oakland County and All-State selection. He led his team to a Division II Oakland County Championship and set the Farmington High School school record shooting a 69 for 18 holes.
Coach Bissett on Kesthely:
"I am very excited for Shane to be a part of our program. He comes from an excellent junior college program that has had tons of success. Shane was one of the best junior college golfers in the state this past year and had an excellent four days at the Junior College National Tournament where he tied for 44th in the country. He has the talent that can allow him to come in and help us immediately. I am really looking forward to working with him."
