The new Dalton State golf program has reached into Tennessee to recruit a three time state champion.

Jenny Adkins, 19, played golf for Signal Mountain Middle and High Schools. The Lady Eagles captured the Tennessee Class A/AA state championship during each of her final three years of high school.

“I’m extremely excited to have Jenny join the program,” said Roadrunner women’s golf coach Jim McGrew. “I believe she will fit in well with what we are trying to do. We’ve really been impressed with her character and her golf potential.”

Jenny is the daughter of Ty and Beth Adkins of Signal Mountain. The newest Roadrunner is the youngest of three siblings. Her sister, Lauren Smith, is 34 and her brother, Austin Adkins, is 21.

Dalton State will play home contests at The Farm in Rocky Face.  The team has also had excellent cooperation with Dalton Golf and Country Club and with Nob North Municipal Course.
