(Wednesday, November 18; Sioux Center, Iowa) Olivia Olson, a senior at Sioux Falls Christian High School (South Dakota), has announced her intention to attend Dordt and join the Defender golf team.

“Olivia brings some great golf experience to our team. She is thoughtful, focused and has a great attitude. We look forward to having Olivia join our team and campus community,” said Dordt golf coach Jon Crane.

Olson placed 14th in the South Dakota State Class A golf tournament and helped the Chargers to a sixth-place finish.  She was on a team that was the state runner-up in 2018.  She carries a 91 average.

“I committed to Dordt University because of its Christ-centered approach to all activities, including golf.  Dordt’s community and authenticity is what solidified my decision to become a Defender,” said Olson.

Olivia is the daughter of Tory and Di Olson of Garretson, South Dakota. She plans to study Accounting at Dordt.

Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa, is a comprehensive Christian college rooted in the Reformed tradition. The Defender athletic program is a part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC).
