A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT…

ABOUT LAKELAND LAKELAND GOLF COACHING STAFF

Welcome to Lakeland Community College, the first college in Ohio founded by a vote of the people. As a college, we take great pride in providing students with the education and training needed to earn a degree, start a career, upgrade job skills or complete the first two years of college education. In addition, it is essential for the college to provide students with opportunities to enhance their college experiences through participation in athletics or on-campus student organizations.

STUDENT-ATHLETES 2013 IN REVIEW HISTORY/RECORDS

When it comes to athletics, Lakeland has an outstanding history of its teams and players performing at the highest level. Our coaches are top-notch and our student-athletes always strive for excellence on the field, on the court, and especially in the classroom. Whether you are a participant or a spectator, thank you for supporting Lakeland’s intercollegiate athletic programs. Sit back and enjoy another exciting, fast-paced season! Morris W. Beverage Jr., E.D.M. President

SCOTT BARLOW | Director for Athletics “Academic success for every student-athlete is the ultimate goal of the athletic department at Lakeland Community College,” says athletic director Scott Barlow. “We believe that success in athletics can support success in the classroom and, ultimately, a successful life.” “At Lakeland, our athletic programs are designed to enhance an athlete’s academic experience by helping our students develop the critical life skills of time management, self-discipline, the ability to work within a team environment, and recognition of the need for personal improvement.” Barlow was named Lakeland’s athletic director during the summer of 2000. He brought with him an extensive educational and practical background in teaching, coaching, and administration. Barlow currently serves as the commissioner of the OCCAC and is the NJCAA Region XII women’s division director. He is also regional representative for the NJCAA Division II volleyball and women’s basketball poll and a member of several NJCAA standing committees including softball, swimming, and diving. He is the national chair of the NJCAA’s Division II women’s basketball committee. Barlow was named OCCAC Athletic Director of the Year in 2002 and was selected as Co-Athletic Director of the Year in 2005. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in physical education from the State University of New York College at Cortland, where he was a four year varsity baseball player. He has two master’s degrees; one in physical education and health from Radford University and another in administrative supervision from the State University of New York – Plattsburgh. A native of upstate New York, Barlow currently resides in Painesville Township with his wife, Jennifer, and three school age children who are active in a variety of sports.

ZACHARY UNDERWOOD | Assistant Coach

Zachary Underwood enters his first season as an assistant coach with the Lakeland men’s golf program. Underwood was a two-year student-athlete under head coach Bobby Cala, competing as a member of the team in 2010 and 2011. As a freshman Underwood carded a season low of 79 and shaved four strokes off that score as a sophomore with a career-best 75. He was also recognized as a S.T.A.R. student-athlete for his performance in the classroom.
