2019 Huntington North graduate Danielle Gonser committed to continue her academic and golf careers at Cornerstone University on Feb. 15.

“I’m beyond thrilled,” Gonser said in an interview with WANE-TV. “It felt good to finally commit to the college. … I knew I wanted to go to a Christian college and once I met the team and coach, I really just felt at home.”

Gonser was a valuable member of the Huntington North girls golf team during her time in high school, helping the Vikings to back-to-back Sectional championships as a junior and senior.

With her commitment, Gonser will be heading to Michigan for the next steps in her life both on and off the course. While her college is not exactly right around the corner being out of state, Gonser is looking forward to starting to take steps of growth.

“It’s going to be a change for sure, but I’m kind of excited to get out on my own and be more independent,” Gonser said in the interview.

When asked what about Cornerstone she enjoyed, Gonser responded with a laugh that the campus was nice and the food was good.

Gonser plans to study psychology while at Cornerstone with a desire to have a career in counseling in the future.

By choosing the Golden Eagles, Gonser will be part of a young roster with just three upperclassmen, all of which are juniors. Gonser will join Bre Stackpole of Sparta, Michigan, as the team’s lone incoming freshmen to round out the seven-player lineup.

Gonser believes she can offer a lot to Cornerstone’s golf program through the effort she puts forth on the course as well as helping add to the dynamic of the team.

Gonser and the rest of the Golden Eagles will kick off their 2019–20 campaign on Sept. 17 when they compete in the Cleary Invitational at Chemung Hills Golf Club in Howell, Michigan.
