Albany -- To paraphrase the late George Harrison, the Darton golf team has its mind set on reclaiming the National Championship, but it's gonna take money, a whole lot of spending money.

The Cavaliers received some help to do it right Thursday, as the River Pointe Men's Golf Association presented head coach Dale Dover and Athletic Director Mike Kiefer with a scholarship check for one-thousand dollars.

The scholarship will be a yearly donation, given to a member of the Darton Golf Team.

River Pointe Men's Golf Association president Marc Matre says, "I have had the pleasure of meeting several of the players on the practice tee, and listening to the coach talk to them, and we come here today to present this perpetual scholarship."

The Cavaliers won the NJCAA national championship three years in a row, before placing second this season.
