Get to know Coach Mettert
A 1978 Graduate of Indiana Tech, head coach Kelly Mettert comes full circle to lead the Warrior linksters back to the course. A native of New Haven, IN and a graduate of New Haven High School, coach Mettert played varsity golf all the way through high school and college. Three years All-Conference in high school and two years All-Conference in college, coach Mettert was also the MVP at Tech for two years. Still holding many of the school records, Kelly hopes to bring in recruits that can set their own new records and get Indiana Tech to the National Tournament.
Coach Mettert brings more than 30 years of coaching experience to the Warriors. He has worked with all age groups and we are glad to have him here at Tech.
Coach Mettert enters his sixth season as the head coach for the Warriors. In the first two years here at Tech, Mettert was honored with the Champions of Character Award and the Coach of the Year when he guided the Lady Warriors to the Conference Championship in 2008-09 and a trip to the National Tournament in Rapid City, South Dakota. In 2010-11, he guided the women's team back to the NAIA National Tournament following a WHAC Regular Season Championship and a Conference Tournament Championship while earning his second WHAC Coach of the Year honors. His goal for this year is to get back to the National Tournament, but knows that it will take some hard work on the kids part to be able to repeat.
Coach Mettert lives in New Haven, IN with his wife of 26 years, Cathy, and three kids: Tina, Kaitlyn, and Andrew (AJ). He is still active in softball, bowling, and of course, golf. He still carries a 5 handicap, so he can give the kids a challenge on the course. He and his wife own Custom Golf, a custom club and repair shop located at Coyote Creek Golf Club. It is the winter hangout for the golfers to practice when not in school. Coach Mettert has also been honored in his field of fitting golf clubs by being named to the Top 100 fitters in the world for five out of the last six years.
