LINDSBORG — Bethany College men’s golf coach Dalton Stevens has added three players to next year’s roster and they come from near and far.

The golfer from near is Ross Bolling of Salina. The golfers traveling long distances are Benjamin Wolfman of Wesley Chapel, Fla.; and international player Jose Maria Cunha of Gaia Porto, Portugal.

"I'm very excited about the announcement of our three newest signees to Bethany,” Stevens said in a release. “They all come from great families and will continue to forge the rich golf tradition we have here at Bethany College. I'm excited to get them on campus in the fall and begin our quest towards our goals of graduating and molding young student-athletes.”

Bolling played at Salina South.

“We have been recruiting Ross for a while now, as a he is a local talent from our backyard,” Stevens said. “He is a tremendous student in the classroom and we look to continue to grow his game over the next four years in his time here at Bethany.”

Wolfman was a four-year player at Wesley Chapel High School.

“Ben is the definition of student-athlete," Stevens said. "He is a 4.0 student who takes care of business in the classroom and a Florida state qualifier in his senior season at Wesley Chapel High School. Ben comes from a very supportive family, which I have gotten to know very well during the recruiting process. I look forward to working with Ben to help him reach all of his goals as a student-athlete here at Bethany over the course of the next four years."

Maria Cuhna continues the Bethany tradition of international players, which have been prominent in the program.

“Jose has a very good skill set and has played at some of the highest levels in Portugal,” Stevens said. “He is a great student-athlete that I look to see him make great strides in his golf game in his four years here at Bethany.”
