(Miles City, MT) Miles Community College head golf coach Chase Tait has announced the signing of Talon Burchard of Helena, MT and Chalee Mullin of Elko, NV to a National Letter of Intent to compete in the 2017-2018 season.

Talon Burchard – Helena, MT

Talon is the son of Trance and Tasa Burchard. The Helena High School Standout finished his high school career with four varsity letters for HHS while playing for Bob Tipton.

Burchard was named most improved player in his freshman season and became a team captain during his senior year on his way to finishing 16th at the State tournament this past fall. Talon also won the Capital City Invite at Green Meadow Country Club with a two day score of 152 (74 & 78).

Talon finished the year with a scoring average of 76 in the six tournaments he competed in including the state tournament where he finished one shot shy of qualifying for the all-state team.

Talon was also a member of the Helena Senators American Legion baseball team and was a runner up a state in 2015.

Burchard plans on working towards his Associate of Science before moving on to pursue a career in physical therapy.

Talon on his signing:

“I chose Miles Community college because I knew it would be a great small town feeling. I also chose MCC because coach Tait was very honest and willing to help me get the chance to golf and that golf is my favorite thing to do. When I got the scholarship offer there was no way I could resist the chance to have coach Tait as a mentor and the chance to golf for Miles Community College.”

Chalee Mullin

Chalee is the daughter of James and Lindy Mullin and will graduate from Elko High School this coming June.

The EHS graduate finished her high school golf career with four varsity letters in golf while playing for head coach Marc Suyematsu and also earned three letters in hockey. With two appearances on the Northern All League team, Chalee was a leader on the golf course for Elko High School and was a part of two regional championships, and a team state championship in 2016. Chalee finished sixth in the state tournament her senior season.

Mullin finished her Senior year with a scoring average of 92.5 in eight tournaments and shot her best score at the Truckee Tournament firing an 84.

Chalee is planning on entering the nursing program while attending Miles Community College while not on the golf course.

Chalee on her signing:

“I chose MCC because I believe that this school will further expand my educational needs and my future career. MCC has a golf program that I will be participating on to help my family financial wise and I will get to play the sport that I love. I chose MCC to help prepare myself for my future."
