My name is Stacy Seidel. I’m from East Lansing, Michigan (home of the Michigan State Spartans).
I played on the Varsity team at East Lansing High School all four years, was named first team in my
conference and All-State first team my senior year. I moved on to experience golf at the collegiate
level at Michigan State University. While I’ve had some experience substitute teaching in the
classroom and volunteering at the schools, this is my first experience coaching. I value my experience
as a player and the lessons I’ve learned from my coaches along the way. I look forward to being able
to contribute any way I can to each and every player as they develop their skills and learn to love the
sport of golf. I’m excited to be involved with the golf program at St. Louis Park and to be working with
Kevin, Matt and Alaina to help foster a fun, competitive season. When I’m not coaching, I work as
corporate counsel for a food and beverage manufacturing company. I’m married to Tom Seidel and
we have two kids. One is at PSI (Zoe) and the other is at SLP High School (Maia). Zoe does Jiu Jitsu,
gymnastics, and golf and Maia plays tennis and golf. We moved to St. Louis Park from Atlanta,
Georgia about six years ago and love it! Park Pride!
Matt Stangl lives in St. Louis Park with his family and works in Wayzata at Cargill. His wife, Morgan, is a
teacher at Loring Elementary School in Minneapolis. They have two children, Eli and Cora, and both
attend PSI. Eli is in 2ndgrade, and Cora is in kindergarten. Matt has played many sports over his life and
has appreciated all those experiences, but none more than golf. He started playing golf when he was
7-years-old and moved to competitive junior golf shortly thereafter. He made the Simley High School golf
team in 8thgrade and lettered that year and the four years following. He qualified for the state golf tournament
three times – in 8th, 11th, and 12th grades. He also played collegiate golf at Carleton College. Matt believes
golf is such a great way to connect with others and learn life lessons. He is passionate about teaching his
own children this wonderful game, and he looks forward to teaching yours too.
My name is Alaina Martin. I am from Eagan, MN and this is my 6th year teaching. I am a DCD special
education at St. Louis Park High School. I went to University of North Dakota where I studied Elementary
Education and Masters in Special Education. I am a lifelong athlete. I grew up playing sports such as soccer,
tennis, softball, track, and volleyball which I played at my high school. I played intramural volleyball in
college and continued to play tennis in my free time. Golf is a new area of interest for me and I am excited
to keep developing as a player and as a coach this season.
