Dalton State golf coaches have been busy this week. The Roadrunners have now picked-up former Walton High golfer Lisa van der Ross.
“I love the homely feel that Dalton State had the moment I walked on campus,” said van der Ross. “The people are so friendly and I get to continue playing a sport that I love.”
Van der Ross, 18, is a 2013 honor graduate (3.6 GPA) who plans to major in business and finance. She played in AAAAA regional and state tournaments during both years on the Raiders’ varsity golf team.
Dalton state women’s coach Jim McGrew sees a winner in the Johannesburg, South Africa native. ”She is an outstanding student with the potential on the golf course to help us become a championship program,” said McGrew.
Lisa is the daughter of Rene and Colin van der Ross of Marietta. She has one brother, Darryn van der Ross, 23.
Dalton State golf teams will play their home games at The Farm, one of the most prestigious courses in the state. The team also has an excellent relationship with Dalton Golf and Country Club and with Nob North Municipal Course.
