JONESBORO, Ark. (7/13/21) – Arkansas State men’s golf head coach Mike Hagen announced Tuesday that Kevin Latchaya and Pierce Johnson will join the A-State program for the 2021-22 season.

A member of the Italian National Team since 2015, Latchaya has played at Liberty University the last two seasons.
