Two Darton sports will survive 'merger'

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Darton State issued a release Friday, saying that women's soccer and men's golf will remain competitive after Darton 'merges' with Albany State.

The soccer women are continuing in their drive to win the NJCAA tournament through the Fall 2016 season.

Darton's men's golf will compete as a part of the NCAA Division II Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference this season.

"After careful review of the NJCAA and NCAA rules and regulations and working with the Athletic Departments at Darton and Albany State this transition of the athletic teams is the best decision for our Darton student athletes, the Albany community, and the consolidation process," said Interim Athletic Director and member of the Albany State University/Darton State College Consolidation Implementation Committee Lea Henry.
