Matt Wernecke grew up in Wharton, Texas. No thanks to the help from a pair of double bogey's, Matt caught the eye of the Sam Houston State University Golf Coach, where he went on to play golf in college. After graduating, and finishing his collegiate career, Coach Wernecke began his career in education at Rice Consolidated. Following a semester stay at Rice Cons, Coach Wernecke headed home to Wharton, where he became the head golf coach and found himself running the program fresh out of college. After 5 successful years at home, he decided to head towards Austin and made a short stop at Pflugerville Hendrickson, prior to making a jump to lead the golf program of the Vandergrift Vipers. As the first and only head coach in the golf program, Coach Wernecke has led both groups to state on multiple occasions, including numerous third place and runner-up finishes on the boys and girls side, and an incredible three year run of state championships for his boys program.
