College News
Wallace State to add Women's Golf
January 16, 2015

HANCEVILLE -Wallace State Community College will add a women 's golf team beginning with the 2015-16 academic year, announced Wallace State President Dr. Vicki Karolewics this week. "Golf is a lifelong sport and I'm excited we can include those kind of sports in our repertoire of athletics at Wal lace State," Karolewics said. "Speaking from a female's perspective, women 's involvement in athletics is very important to me. You can look at the history of our women 's teams at Wallace State and see that we have a two-time national championship softball team, a volleyball team that makes the national tournament each year and a women 's basketball team that has won a number of state championships. Our women 's teams are not only outstanding athletically, but academically." Like the Wal lace State men 's program , the women's team will compete during both the fall and spring seasons and be coached by Dan York. Wal lace State's men 's golf team has enjoyed perennial success under York, who has led the program since 1987. He has guided the men to 19 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) tournament appearances and finished national runner-up on three occasions, includ ing last spring. The Lions previously ished national runner-up in 1993 and 1996. Wallace State's men, the defending conference champions, have also won 11 conference titles under York, who was inducted into the NJCAA Hall of Fame in 2010. York is eager to pilot the women 's golf program. "There are a lot of young ladies in the area who haven 't had an opportunity to play golf in college because some of them simply got overlooked," said York, a Cullman native. "If they don't get signed to a four-year college, they are out of luck. We're now going to give them the opportunity to not only continue their education but to play in some tournaments and hopefully be seen by these four-year colleges in order to earn an additional scholarship." York has coached eventual PGA Tour professionals Brett Wetterich and Fredrick Jacobsen at Wallace State, along with country music star Kip Moore. "There may be a fairytale story out there for a young woman we may recruit," York said. "We were the only school to offer a scholarship to Brett Wetterich and the rest is history. He won on the PGA Tour and was a Ryder Cup member."   Women 's golf will become the eighth Wallace State sport to offer scholarships to potential student­ athletes, joining baseball, softball, men and women 's basketball, volleyball, men's golf, and cheerleading.
