Dec. 9, 2003

LARAMIE, Wyo. -

University of Wyoming women's golf coach Jill Rettinger announced today the signing of Lindsay Bauknecht of Vienna, Va., to a national letter of intent.

Bauknecht concluded her high school career tying for individual runner-up honors at the Virginia High School State Championship. She posted a stroke average of 77.0 as a senior. Her junior year, she placed 21st out of 85 qualifiers at the Florida High School State Tournament. Due to her father's career in the Navy, she competed for three different schools during her high school career. She was chosen team captain three years.

An accomplished junior player, Bauknecht participated in over 35 junior tournaments in eight states. Bauknecht has won four junior tournament titles.

Also an outstanding student, she is a member of the National Honor Society, and is listed among the "Who's Who Among High School Students in Academics and Athletics."

"I am excited about Lindsay (Bauknecht) joining our program," said Rettinger. "Lindsay has a great competitive desire. She has enhanced her high school experience by playing a lot of junior golf, and has enjoyed success as a junior.

"I think she is going to be a great addition to our team. We have a good base of players already in place, but I think Lindsay will really complement the freshmen we have playing this year."

Bauknecht is the daughter of Lauren and Joe Bauknecht.

She will join the Cowgirl Golf program in the fall of 2004.
