Lourdes University athletic director Andre Smith has announced that Gil Guerrero has been named the school’s head men’s and women’s golf coach.
Mr. Guerrero will be the second golf coach in program history, succeeding Scott Simon, who resigned in late October.
“I truly believe we are lucky to find someone like Gil to follow Scott’s footstep," Mr. Smith said. "Gil is an established winning coach that has proven himself in the sport.”
Mr. Guerrero has served as the head boy’s golf coach at St. Francis De Sales High School in Toledo since 2013, but prior to that spent 2006-2012 as the head golf coach at Owens Community College. At Owens, he led the Express to three Ohio Community College Athletic Conference titles and was a three-time OCCAC Coach of the Year. He helped Owens qualify for the NJCAA national. Mr. Guerrero also had three teams finish NJCAA regional runner-up. Prior to his stint at Owens, Mr. Guerrero was the head boy’s coach at Start High School in Toledo for 20 seasons.
“I am extremely excited about being named head men’s and women’s golf coach at Lourdes University,” Mr. Guerrero said. "I would like to thank the administration for giving me this opportunity. I am very anxious to begin helping our players achieve their goals on and off the golf course.”
