With the addition of lacrosse at George Walton Academy, the beginning of a new sports craze is working its way into Walton County. The Bulldogs started their lacrosse program this year as part of a vision from Athletic Director Mark Whitley.

“When I got here in 2018, one of the biggest things we were tasked with, from an athletic standpoint, was what can we do to offer as many things as possible to get kids to come to school here,” Whitley said.
