On October 24, Hornet senior golfer Dakota Jones signed with Brescia University to continue his education and competitive golf career. 

At the beginning of the signing ceremony, Mrs. Bell stood before the crowd and introduced Dakota.  

“This is a momentous occasion because a young man that has been a part of our family for the last three and a half years will be graduating soon,” she began. “We cannot hand him over to more capable hands than Brescia University in Owensboro Kentucky.”  

Following a standing ovation, there was a halt in the festivities as Dakota stood in front of his family, friends, teammates and classmates and addressed the group. 

“Thank you everybody for coming out,” he said to the crowd. “I’m very, very thankful for having the opportunity to go on and play golf at the college level.” 

MCHS Golf Coach, Mr. Stockton, then spoke about Dakota’s accomplishments as both an athlete and a student.  

“Dakota has been exceptional both on the course and in the classroom,” Mr. Stockton began. “We’re very proud of what he’s accomplished and the way he’s represented our program.”
