EDWARDSVILLE — SIUE men’s golf has added Edwardsville native Justin Hemings to its roster.
Hemings comes to SIUE after a semester at Northern Illinois. He graduated from Edwardsville High School in December 2015, then played the spring semester with the Huskies.
“I am very excited to add a player of Justin’s caliber to our roster,” SIUE head coach Derrick Brown said. “He brings some college experience from his time at NIU and I look forward to watching him grow at SIUE over the coming years.”
Hemings appeared in five of Northern Illinois’ six spring tournaments, including the Mid-American Conference championship where he enjoyed his best finish, tying for 23rd place. His lowest round of the season came in the third round at the MAC championship, where he fired a 72.
Prior to his time at NIU, Hemings captured the IHSA 3A State Championship as a senior at Edwardsville in 2015. He medaled three other times as a senior. Hemings was part of a Tigers team that captured four conference titles, two regional championships and a super-sectional championship in 2015.
SIUE men’s golf opens the 2016-17 season Saturday, Sept. 3, at the UNO Invitational in Nebraska City, Neb.
