LARAMIE, Wyo. -
Laramie native Kaelee Aegerter has signed a national letter of intent with the University of Wyoming women's golf program. The announcement was made by UW women's golf coach Jill Rettinger on Tuesday.
Aegerter graduated from Laramie High School in the spring of 2004 after an outstanding high school career. During her senior season, she won 11 tournaments in a row. Among her victories was the Eastern Conference Championship, which she won in May. The highlight of her high school career came in the fall of 2003 as she captured the individual title at the Wyoming State Championships. She currently carries a 10 handicap. Aegerter will join the Cowgirl Golf program in the fall of 2004.
"We are thrilled to have Kaelee (Aegerter) join the UW women's golf program," said Rettinger. "Obviously, to be able to keep a young lady like Kaelee, with her athletic and academic talents, here in Laramie is great for our team and our university. Kaelee is an outstanding young lady, with an incredible competitive spirit. She will be an excellent addition to our team, and she will fit in very well with our current athletes and our new signees. I expect Kaelee to make an immediate impact on UW Golf."
Aegerter graduated from Laramie High School with a perfect 4.0 grade point average. She would someday like to pursue a career as a sideline reporter.
The daughter of Julie and Kurk Aegerter, her father was her high school coach at Laramie High.
Aegerter joins Laura Mengelkamp of Dover, Pa., as Wyoming's two women's golf signees for 2004. Mengelkamp signed with the Cowgirl Golf program in April.
