WOMEN'S GOLF RECRUITS SIGN WITH ODU
Old Dominion University women's golf coach Pat Kotten announced the signing of Katelyn Linkski, Amanda Moore, Bailey Mosier and Meghan Schaefer to letters of intent for the 2004-05 season.
Linkski of New Market, Va., placed 14th at the Virginia State High School Girls Championship this season. She was named athlete of the week and also scholar athlete of the month. Linkski also lettered in volleyball and tennis at Stonewall Jackson High School.
"Katelyn Linkski will be focusing on golf only for the first time. She has good length off the tee and will develop into a solid player," Kotten said.
A Hudson, Fla., native, Moore earned all-county honors four times while at J.W. Mitchell High School. She was The St. Petersburg Times Golfer of the Year in 2000 and 2002 and The Tampa Tribune Player of the Year in 2000.
"Amanda Moore brings a solid game and leadership to our young program," Kotten said. "She could also challenge for the top spot on our squad."
Mosier of Las Vegas was named to the All-Las Vegas High School First Team by the Southern Nevada Golf Coaches Association and received the 2003 Southern Nevada Junior Golf Association Point Leader Award for girls ages 15-18. She qualified for the Southwest Section PGA and the Westfield Junior PGA Championships.
"Bailey Mosier is a tall, strong player with a tremendous upside. She has a nice touch around the greens and will develop into a longer hitter as she learns to use her height to her advantage," Kotten said.
Schaefer of Union, Ky. was named the Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference Player of the Year in 2003. She won the Northern Kentucky Regional Championship and the Northern Kentucky Junior Amateur Championship that same year. Schaefer won the Gatorade Advanced Series in 2002.
"Meghan Schaefer is a strong player with a solid tournament background. I feel that she could challenge for the top spot in the line-up before the end of the season," Kotten said.
