Three Rochester Golf Coaches to Retire After Spring Season

This spring will mark the end of an era for girls high school golf in Rochester, Minnesota as three veteran head coaches have announced plans to retire or move on to new opportunities.

At Century High School, Aaron Berg will step down after five seasons as girls golf coach to accept a teaching position in the Byron school district. Berg has nearly 30 years of coaching experience, mostly in girls basketball, and helped grow the Panthers' program during his tenure.

 

Longtime John Marshall coach Andy Ollenburg will also retire after several decades involved in coaching both basketball and golf. Under Ollenburg's leadership, the Rockets transitioned from a non-competitive team to a consistently strong Big Nine Conference program. He cites his love of coaching and working with students as what he will miss the most.

 

The coaching changes also include Steve Myhro of Mayo High School, who is retiring after an incredible 24-year run leading the Spartans. Myhro has been instrumental in continuously growing the Mayo golf program and developing countless young women. He has unsuccessfully tried to retire twice before due to a lack of a suitable replacement, but says this time he is confident in Mayo's future coaching succession plan.

 

All three departing coaches have had tremendous success and leave behind lasting legacies at their respective schools. They have also worked closely together to foster a cooperative spirit among Rochester area girls golf that will continue under the new coaching staffs next spring. Thursday marks the beginning of the Section 1A tournament, which will be the final section competition for these Rochester coaching icons.

 

These coaches shaped Rochester golf for generations. Their impact will resonate through future players for years to come. They will be greatly missed but have cemented an inspiring legacy to build upon.
