Dalton State Women’s Golf Signs JUCO Star

Sunday, February 2, 2014 - by Bob Beavers

The Dalton State women’s golf program has found another piece of the puzzle as coaches, Jim McGrew and Marsha Whitener get the program set for a fall launch.

Erika Warzinski, a 20-year-old, 5’7” sophomore at Seminole State College in Sanford (FL), visited Dalton this past week and signed her letter of intent Saturday afternoon.

The Valrico IFL) native attended Durant High School where she was on the golf, tennis, volleyball and diving teams.

She is a redshirt sophomore with Seminole State.  The 2012 JUCO All American led her team to the National Junior College Athletic Association championship tournament. She finished the tournament fifth overall individually with a personal best round of 71.

“I’m extremely excited to add someone of Erika’s ability and character to our program,” said coach McGrew. “She has proven her ability to perform at the highest levels of competition.”

McGrew said Warzinski’s experience should also help younger players. 

“With that experience we know we are adding a leader to help our younger players understand what it takes to compete for conference and national championships,” added McGrew. “We know Erika will be a great addition to the Roadrunner family.” 

Men’s golf is well underway at Dalton State, but women’s golf will tee-off in the fall with a complete 2014-2015 schedule.

Roadrunner athletics are a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). Beginning in the fall, Dalton State will compete in the Southern States Athletic Conference.
