After alternating in and out of the lineup each of the last two years, junior Abby Wheeler (Grayling) is going to get the chance to have a larger impact for the team. She played 17 rounds last year, averaging 88.6 strokes. Freshman Lanette Porter (Detroit/Finney) rounds out the Olivet roster.

HEAD COACH BILL MAAS Bill Maas is in his sixth season as Olivet’s head women’s golf coach. He also serves the athletic department as NCAA compliance coordinator and academic counselor. Maas has steadily built Olivet into the top women’s golf program in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA). Last year, the Comets captured their third straight MIAA championship and berth to the NCAA Division III

National Championships. In 2009, Olivet tied for 11th-place at the national championships. In 2008, the Comets were 11th and in 2007, they placed ninth and were only one stroke behind the eighth-place finisher. The team’s rise to the top spot in the MIAA came after runner-up finishes in 2004 and 2005. Maas is a 1989 graduate of Olivet. He resides in Olivet with wife, Amy, and serves as the assistant fire chief for the city.

The Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) is America’s oldest collegiate athletic conference. The 2009-10 school year marks the 123rd consecutive year of operation for the NCAA Division III affiliated conference. The MIAA was founded March 24, 1888. From the very beginning, the MIAA has conducted full-season championships in multiple sports. There have been changes in some of the sports (bicycle racing and Indian club juggling have long since disappeared, and basketball did not even exist in 1888), but these changes have served to develop the MIAA into one of America’s finest NCAA Division III conferences, today offering 18 sports for men and women. The MIAA’s continuity is noteworthy. Of the 12 schools that have had full membership, eight are still members — Adrian, Albion, Alma, Calvin, Hope, Kalamazoo, Olivet, and Saint Mary’s. Significantly, not one of these eight colleges has ever belonged to any other formal league. Albion and Olivet were charter members although Albion is the only member to hold continuous membership. Ex-members are Michigan State University (1888-1907), Eastern Michigan University (1892-1926), Hillsdale College (1888-1960), and Defiance College (1997-2000). The MIAA’s membership list went unchanged from 1960 until 1997 when the Defiance College of Ohio and Saint Mary’s College of Indiana were invited to join. It also marked the first time that the league added members outside the state of Michigan. The league stipulated, however, that the name of the conference would not change. The inaugural year of current members are: Adrian (1908), Albion (1888), Alma (1902), Calvin (1953), Hope (1926), Kalamazoo (1896), Olivet (1888), and Saint Mary’s (1997). The MIAA marked a historic note in 2002 when the league accepted Wisconsin Lutheran College of Milwaukee as an associate member for the purpose of competing in football. Wisconsin Lutheran left the MIAA after the 2007 season to join the Northern Athletics Conference. Trine University of Angola, Ind., became a conference member in 2004-05 upon its acceptance as a provisional NCAA member.
