Trent Wallace had a memorable freshman year on the ISU men’s golf team. He captured the 2016 Missouri Valley Conference championship title in the spring with a 1-over-par 211 at the Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kansas.

Wallace fired two rounds at 69, which tied his season low and made him the fifth ISU student-athlete in program history to win the conference championship. He finished with five birdies on the tournament’s last day.

The victory established All-Missouri Valley Conference honors for Wallace, who was named MVC Newcomer of the Year. It also qualified him for the NCAA Golf Championship that was held in May. He ended that competition eight over par, just missing the opportunity to advance to the national championship.

As a team, the Redbirds finished third in the MVC championship. The men finished 2 strokes behind Wichita State and 12 back from Southern Illinois University, which won the team title.
