Sarah Archuleta signing her National Letter of Intent
Nov. 14, 2013
FORT COLLINS – The Colorado State women’s golf team and first-year Head Coach Annie Young announced that Allie Andersen and Sarah Archuleta have signed National Letters of Intent (NLIs) on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period.
After being hired in late June, Young only had a few months to begin a new recruiting process in Fort Collins, however, the quick turnaround produced two promising players.
“I feel like we are very fortunate to sign Allie and Sarah with me getting to CSU so late in the recruiting process,” said Young. “This speaks volumes about what CSU has to offer both with our golf facilities as well as the education.”
Andersen, a native of The Woodlands, Texas, comes to Colorado State with national experience, something that Young looks for in her recruits. This past summer, as Andersen was preparing for her senior season, she qualified for the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship held in Fort Wayne, Ind., at the Sycamore Hills Golf Club.
The summer prior to that, Andersen was named Texas Junior Golf Tour Player of the year after a strong showing which included a first-place finish at the Kingwood Forest Junior Championship.
Andersen is familiar with competing on the final day as she took first place the summer before her junior year and was a runner up the next summer in the Starburst Junior Golf Classic held in Waco, Texas.
Archuleta, who hails from West Linn, Ore., will come to Colorado State after playing in 77 tournaments through her first three years at West Linn High School. Last May, Archuleta took home district honors after shooting even par at Stone Creek Golf Course in Oregon City, Ore. The 5-foot-8 senior has posted top-10 individual finishes in the 6A Oregon state championship in the first three years of her high school career.
Archuleta has similar national experience as Andersen. Archuleta also played in the U.S. Girls’ Junior Championship last summer, carding a 54-hole score of 160.
“Both players are very athletic and have a lot of upside in their games,” said Young. “They have had national experience which is only going to help with their transition to college golf. I expect both of them to be an immediate impact for our program next fall.”
