If his first season in Council Bluffs was any indication, Van Raden will be a golfer who can step in and help the Govs immediately.

He earned three top-five finishes in nine events last season, including the Derek Dolenc Invitational against a host of Division I competitors. As a freshman, he finished 56th at the 2019 NJCAA National Championships.

This fall, he’s helped the Reivers secure two wins, while personally securing an 11th-place showing at the Tabor Invitational.

As a prep, Van Raden was a five-time All-State competitor at Red River High School, closing out his career with three straight top-three finishes in the North Dakota Class A State Championships and a win in 2018 as a senior. He then followed that up by winning the North Dakota State Stroke Play Championship in 2018 before heading off to Council Bluffs. Last summer, he placed third in the North Dakota State Stroke Play Championship and fifth in the state match play event.

“We are excited to add Adam to our program,” said Austin Peay State University head coach Robbie Wilson. “He brings experience competing at the highest level of junior college and he will step in and be ready to compete in the fall.”
