Dave Schreyer returned to his alma mater in January 2013 as Huntingdon College's Director of Golf.
As a player, Schreyer was a four-time All-American and an individual national champion for the Hawks before spending 17 years as a tour player. A Dave Williams National Coach of the Year Award winner, two-time Division III Region Coach of the Year and two-time conference Coach of the Year, Schreyer’s experience has helped the Huntingdon men’s and women’s programs achieve success on the course and in the classroom.
Schreyer’s men’s and women’s programs have produced a Division III Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year, seven All-Americans, seven All-Region performers, 12 All-Conference selections, 17 All-American Scholars and 47 Academic All-Conference selections.
Schreyer's men's teams have qualified for the NCAA Division III Men's Golf Championship twice in four seasons and the women's program produced its first individual NCAA Tournament qualifier in 2015.
During the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons, the men's program turned in two of Huntingdon's best seasons during the NCAA era as the Hawks placed in the top four in the national tournament both seasons.
Huntingdon shot 1,190 to tie for fourth in 2017 and 1,204 to place second in 2016. The runner-up finish was the best performance in the NCAA Tournament in Huntingdon history.
The 2016-17 team was ranked first in Division III for most of the season, placed first in five tournaments and finished in the top four in all 10 tournaments. The five wins are the second most in a season for Huntingdon during the NCAA era. The Hawks averaged 290.44 per round, almost seven strokes better than the team's 297.37 average in 2016 and two strokes better than Huntingdon's previous NCAA-era record of 292.38.
The team produced three of the Hawks' top five single-season scoring averages during the NCAA era, including Addison Lambeth's record of 71.41. Lambeth set the previous record of 72.37 during the 2015-16 season. Lambeth also set Hawks' NCAA-era records with 16 rounds of par or better during the season, the lowest of round of the NCAA era with a 64 and tied the 54-hole record with a 210.
Among the team's best performances during the season was a 30-stroke win in the Gordin Classic. The team's 12-under-par 272 in the second round set Huntingdon's new NCAA-era marks for low round and low round vs. par. The Hawks' 17-under 551 for 36 holes and 5-under 847 for 54 holes also set new NCAA-era records for the program.
Schreyer was named the Dave Williams Division III National Coach of the Year, the Golf Coaches Association of America’s Division III South Region Coach of the Year and the USA South Athletic Conference Coach of the Year. Lambeth, the USA South Golfer of the Year, was named first-team All-American, All-Region and All-Conference.

During 2015-16, Huntingdon won four tournaments and returned to the national tournament for the first time since 2012. Lambeth's tie for second in the NCAA Tournament tied for the best individual finish by a Hawk during the NCAA era.
During the season, Huntingdon and Lambeth each earned their first wins in the O'Briant-Jensen Memorial. The team win was the first since the 2010-11 season and Lambeth's individual win was the first by a Hawk since the 2011-12 season.
In addition to the four tournament wins and the runner-up finish in the NCAA Tournament, Huntingdon also placed second in the USA South Tournament and finished in the top 10 in all 11 tournaments.

Schreyer guided the Hawks during their final five tournaments of the 2012-13 season and closed the year with back-to-back third-place finishes.
On the women's side, the Lady Hawks have reached new heights since Schreyer's arrival. After guiding the Lady Hawks in their final four tournaments of the 2012-13 season, Schreyer's first four full seasons have gone down as the best four seasons in program history.

Twenty of the top 22 individual rounds in program history, the top 16 individual 54-hole totals, the top 20 team rounds, the top 18 team 36-hole totals and the top eight team 54-hole totals have been recorded during Schreyer's tenure.
The 2016-17 season opened with two Lady Hawks' milestones in the BSC Southern Shootout. LeeAnn Cahoon's 1-under 69 in the opening round was the first round in the 60s by a Lady Hawk. Cahoon's 2-over 142 for the tournament was the best 36-hole total in program history and marked the first individual tournament win by a Lady Hawk.
