"I am really happy about coming to Dalton State," said Skiffen. "I had several other offers, but I felt like Dalton was the best fit for me not only for golf but for my education. I feel very comfortable there and can't wait to see what's to come"

"It is really exciting for our program to add Katelyn to the Roadrunner family," said Coach McGrew. "She is the kind of student-athlete that will help us contend for championships and represent our program in a positive way. The fact that she is a hometown product just makes it that much more special and I know it's a big deal to our community. We are glad that with all of the options she had that she chose us."
