Brandon Tereshko has been selected head coach of Hanover College's men's and women's golf teams.

Tereshko, who takes over from longtime coach Wayne Perry, comes to the College after serving as men's and women's golf coach at St. Andrews University, a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics institution (NAIA) in North Carolina. Prior to leading the Knights' golf programs, he was an assistant coach at his alma mater, Taylor University, for one year.

In his two-year stint at the NAIA institutions, Tereshko guided one men's team and one women's squad to a conference championship. At Taylor, the Trojans earned a total of nine victories, five on the men's side and four by the women's team.

Tereshko also spent nine years as a golf course assistant at Sunrise Falls Golf Course in Madison, Ind., where he managed golf course operations, coordinated and directed high school and college tournaments, conducted summer camps for children and performed club fittings and repairs. During his stint in Madison, he also served as a volunteer assistant for the Hanover golf programs from 2014-16.

Tereshko recently competed in the 2018 Indiana Amateur Championship, where he made the cut and finished among the top 60 in the field of 162 golfers. He placed in the top 10 in the 2017 amateur championship.

A 2017 graduate of Taylor University, Tereshko received his bachelor's degree in accounting. A two-time all-Crossroads Conference performer for the Trojans (2012-13), he posted 11 top-10 finishes and was the NAIA leader in par-five scoring and sub-par strokes per round in 2014.
