HUNTINGTON, Ind. – Edgewood High School senior Megan Higgins has announced her intention to play golf at Huntington University this fall.

No stranger to success, Higgins has racked up numerous awards as a four-year varsity member of the Mustangs’ squad. The three-time MVP was the Western Indiana Conference medalist by nine strokes in the fall. She also placed second at sectionals and carries two Bloomington B97 Athlete of the Week honors.

Academically, Higgins is a member of the National Honor Society, president of student council, and a class officer. She plans to pursue an associate of science degree in Occupational Therapy Assistant.

“Huntington is a great Christian college, it is small and has everything I want,” said Higgins. “I think that attending this college will really impact my life for the better.”

“Megan is someone who went from shooting 110 at Sectional her freshman year to 78 her senior year,” noted Coach Pete Schownir. “I really like working with golfers who have improved rapidly and desire to work at it in college. She is a welcome addition to the program’s future success.”

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 17 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 254 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S. News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
