ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - St. Cloud State University men's golf coach Judi Larkin has been named the 2013-14 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference men's golf coach of the year. This marks the second consecutive season that Larkin has earned this distinction at St. Cloud State.

SCSU golfers named to the 2013-14 All-NSIC team included first team selections senior Devin Holmes (Ramsey, Minn./Anoka H.S.) and junior Tyler Kovisto (Cokato, Minn./Dassel-Cokato H.S.) and second team selection senior Charlie West (Victoria, Minn./Chaska H.S.). This marks the second consecutive season that these three golfers have earned All-NSIC accolades.

Larkin was voted on by her peers for the NSIC coach of the year award. Larkin, who is in her 12th season at SCSU, guided the Huskies to their second straight NSIC men's golf title this season. Larkin also earned Coach of the Year honors in the North Central Conference in 2004, 2005 and 2007. The Huskies have also been selected as a team to participate in the 2014 NCAA DII Men's Midwest/Central Region Tournament, which will be held on May 5-7 at the Fox Run Golf Course in Eureka, Missouri.

Kovisto earned medalist honors at the recent 2014 NSIC spring championships with a three-day total of 219, while Holmes and West both placed third in the tournament with scores of 223. As a team, the Huskies crushed the competition at the NSIC spring tournament with a score of 890 - 30 strokes ahead of second place Minnesota State and Concordia-St. Paul (920).

This marks the 13th straight year the St. Cloud State men's golf team has qualified for the NCAA Division II Men's Golf Championships. St. Cloud State, ranked #10 in the Central Region, earned an automatic bid to the Central/Midwest Regional by winning the 2014 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) Championship on April 13. The region tournament serves as a qualifier for the upcoming 2014 NCAA Division II championships, which will be held on May 19-23 at the Meadows Golf Course in Allendale, Mich.
