Dalton State’s first year women’s golf team opens this fall with the Georgia Class A state sectional low medalist on board.
Ashley McDonald, a 2014 graduate of Gordon Lee High School in Chickamauga, signed this week while visiting the school and golf facilities.
“We are really excited to have Ashley join our program,” said DS Head Coach Jim McGrew. “We feel like she has tremendous potential and her 4.0 GPA for all four years of high school shows that she will fit in well in terms of what we are looking for in a student athlete.”
Ms. McDonald shot a 79 in the sectional. The Dalton State nursing program and an opportunity to attend college close to home were key factors in her decision to attend Dalton State, she stated.
