Golf is the latest member of the ever-expanding athletic program at Mid-Atlantic Christian University.
MACU announced Friday that golf would join men’s and women’s basketball and women’s volleyball as varsity sports at the school.
Women’s basketball and volleyball, which were played at MACU years ago and then disbanded, have been re-introduced in the past year.
Kendall Williams, Sr., will become the coach when the program begins. Williams and his wife, Salisa, are also serving as the Resident Hall Directors.
Williams is a highly decorated military man with 15 years of service. He is currently the Readiness NCO at the National Guard Armory in Elizabeth City. He is a graduate of Northeastern High School and attended the College of The Albemarle before entering the military.
“He is a golfer with extensive knowledge and experience who loves the sport and works hard at perfecting the craft,” MACU athletic director Neal Alligood said, “I was ecstatic that someone with Kendall’s knowledge, experience and enthusiasm was actively pursuing this position. I’ve known Kendall and Lisa for a while and could not be happier to see them even more involved and plugged into our university setting.
“They are great role models and wonderful people to put in the path of these young men and women. I look forward to working alongside Coach Williams.”
