Women's Golf Announces Class of 2014

PHILADELPHIA - The University of Pennsylvania's head coach of women's golf, Mark Anderson, has announced his recruited Class of 2014. Three women will join the women's golf program, which won the ECAC and Ivy League Championships team titles and competed in the NCAA West Regional in 2010.

"I am very excited about the three freshmen we have coming in for the fall," said Anderson, who enters his third year with the program in 2010-11. "They have incredible playing resumes, and I have no doubt that we will continue the great run we had last year. I expect this team to contend for first place in every tournament that we play, and I know we will have some great individual performances along the way. I am confident that this team will be right there when we defend our Ivy League title next spring."
