Kris Graewin, a Prairie du Chien, Wis. native, took over the reins at Iowa Central in June. Graewin, 25 years old, earned a bachelor’s degree in Sport Management and Leadership at Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wis. in 2016. During his playing career, he was a three-year captain and earned first-team all-North Star Athletic Association honors his final season at Viterbo.
“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity that Dr. Kinney and Iowa Central have given me,” said Graewin. “Everything about the campus here at Iowa Central was appealing to me. I’m looking forward to building a program that makes everyone in Triton Nation proud.”
Following his time in La Crosse, he began working at Central College as an intern in the sports information department. He spent two years at Central in the sports information department and was the assistant men’s golf coach under Jon Olson during the 2017-18 season.
Graewin is hoping to take the Tritons to unchartered territory during his tenure.
“I love to win and my goal is for our programs to not only be competitive at the regional level but also nationally,” he said. “I’ve always wanted my athletes to be relaxed on the golf course because when a player is relaxed and confident, anything is possible.”
