Men's Golf Roster
Why Lehigh? “I chose Lehigh because it offers the opportunity to receive an excellent education in my major, while competing in a Division I program with a great on-campus practice facility in addition to a top of the line golf course, Saucon Valley.”
On Coach D’Alberto: “Coach understands both mentally and physically what it takes to improve your golf game. He has the knowledge and experience to help you become a better team and individual player. Amidst the competition, the coaching staff fosters team chemistry and a supportive atmosphere – a major plus.”
On the student-athlete experience: “Being a student-athlete at Lehigh means you are a leader in the classroom and on the golf course by taking on the responsibility to set a positive example for others.”
