WEST POINT, Ga. – Point University women's golf coach Angela Ormsby has added Ally Warnke from Covenant Christian Academy in Logansville, Ga., to her 2017-18 squad.


"Ally will bring dedication and joy to our team next year.  I'm excited to add such a wonderful Christian lady to our team!" commented Coach Ormsby.  "Ally will help our team become extremely competitive on the course but more importantly, she embodies the values Point University students embrace."


Warnke spent her first three years of high school in Seattle, Wash., where she attended Seattle Lutheran High School from 2013-16.  She attended Covenant Christian Academy for her senior year, 2016-17.  Ally earned four varsity letters in golf, four varsity letters in cheerleading (2013-17) and two varsity letters in volleyball (2013-14).


She won first place at the 2016 Georgia State Girls' Golf Tournament and was named to the All-State team.  She also won the Coaches' Award symbolic of the All-Around Female Athlete at Covenant Christian Academy in 2016.


Prior to moving with her family to Georgia, Warnke placed third at the Quad-District Tournament and 17th at the Washington State Tournament during her junior year in 2015, and earned All-League first team honors and was voted her team's Most Valuable Player.  She also received All-League first team and team MVP recognition as a sophomore in 2014, and placed 14th in the Bi-District/Tri-District Tournament and 12th in the State Tournament.


Ally also played on the Athens (Ga.) Junior Golf Tour during her senior year of high school in 2016-17.  She also received the Outstanding Performance in Golf and Life Skills, Eagle Level, from The First Tee of Greater Seattle in 2014.


Warnke also served as Head Cheer Captain for Covenant Christian Academy as a senior and was named an All-American Cheerleader during her junior year at Seattle Lutheran in 2014-15.  She also represented the United States in the New Year's Day Parade in London, England.


Warnke also is active in service to her church and her community.  She has served with the Gwinnett County Police Explorers, worked as Assistant Coach for The First Tee of Greater Seattle and volunteered with the American Heart Association.  She also has ministered in the nursing home ministry of Jericho Church, the Vacation Bible School ministry of Hope Lutheran Church, the outdoor living nativity ministry of the Highline Christian Church, and has served Thanksgiving dinners at Holy Family Church.


Warnke commented on why she chose Point as the place where she will continue her education and competitive golf career, "I chose Point because it is a small, faith-based university with an established criminal justice program along with an amazing golf team under Coach Ormsby."
