LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming head women's golf coach Josey Stender announced today that Sarah Fogerty, of San Diego, Calif., has signed a national letter of intent to play golf for the Cowgirls. Fogerty, a 5' 5" high school senior at Point Loma in San Diego, will join the Wyoming squad in the fall of 2006.
An accomplished junior golfer, Fogerty was a member of the San Diego Junior America's Cup team this past summer, which competed in Mexico, and was on the Mary Cave Cup team in San Diego earlier this fall. For 2005 she was awarded the San Diego Junior Golfer of the Year award by the San Diego County Junior Golf Association (SDJGA). Fogerty is a member of the American Junior Golf Association, the top junior golf tour in the world.
"Sarah is the type of student-athlete that every coach wants because she is so well-rounded," said Stender. "She is a good golfer who has played nationally, a good student with a strong work and practice ethic, and is a determined individual who possesses a very outgoing personality.
"We're lucky to get her. Sarah has the ability to come in and contribute right away for us and make an immediate impact."
Fogerty's summer was highlighted by SDJGA wins at the Cubic Corporation Classic and Marvin K. Brown Match Play. She is a two-time high school conference champion, a four-year California Interscholastic Federation qualifier, the 2003 Oceanside Women's City Amateur Championships winner, a four-year MVP of her high school golf team and a near 4.0 student in the classroom.
"I fell in love with the University of Wyoming," said Fogerty. "I really enjoyed my school visit and the coach and girls were awesome. I've lived in San Diego for my whole life, and I wanted four or five years of a different college experience. I think I'll enjoy the smaller town and the close knit community in Laramie."
Other schools that recruited Fogerty included: Colorado State, Long Beach State and San Fransisco.
