MINNEAPOLIS - Sophie Kitchen has signed a National Letter of Intent (NLI) to golf at the University of Minnesota, head coach Michele Redman announced today. Kitchen will be eligible to compete during the 2013-14 season.

A native of Collingwood, Ontario, Kitchen won the Toronto Star Women's Amateur earlier this summer at Barrie Country Club, defeating North Carolina State's Vivian Tsui 2 and 1 in the final round. The incoming freshman also bested Illinois' Laura DeMarco, Missouri's Alina Rogers and Eastern Michigan's Corey Crossan in route to the title.

Kitchen also posted top-ten finishes in 2013 at the CN Future Links Prairie Championship (second), the Vertdure Junior Spring Open (tied for second) and the GAO Junior Girls Spring Classic (fourth).
