Former golfer Louis Lick was one of 10 new members inducted into the University of Minnesota's "M" Club Hall of Fame on Thursday night. His son, Charles, was there at TCF Bank Stadium to accept the honor.

Lick was inducted into the Pioneer Division, which honors Gopher greats who were at the University before 1955. The St. Paul Central High School product was Minnesota's first NCAA champion in men's golf when he won medalist honors at the 1944 NCAA championship. Lick is the fifth men's golfer to be inducted into the "M" Club Hall of Fame.

A medical student, Lick served with a M*A*S*H unit during the Korean War. He went on to practice surgery in his home state of Minnesota. Lick passed away at the age of 89 in February of this year.
