MINNEAPOLIS – University of Minnesota women’s golf coach Michele Redman announced today that Calgary, Alberta native Sabrine Garrison has signed a National Letter of Intent and will compete for the Gophers beginning in the 2014-15 season.
After a stellar performance throughout the 2013 season of competition, Garrison was named to Team Canada’s women’s development squad in late October.
“Sabrine has great consistency to her game, and she’s got a great demeanor as a calm competitor. I think that’s a great combination,” Redman said. “Her experience with Team Canada will be a great asset for her, and we’re looking forward to seeing what she can do next year.”
Garrison was the 2013 CN Future Links Western Champion – winning by six strokes over a strong field at Wolf Creek Golf Course – and also recorded a runner-up finish at the 2013 Alberta Girls Championship, a third-place finish at the 2013 Canada Summer Games and tied for fifth at the 2013 Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Championship. The Canadian golfer also tied for 30th at the 2013 Callaway Junior World Championship in July at Torrey Pines (South) in California.
The 2012 playing season also saw Garrison find success, placing second at the 2012 CN Future Links Western Championship, third at the 2012 Alberta Junior Girls Championships and tied for ninth at the CN Future Links Pacific Championship.
Garrison is the second Canadian prep athlete to sign with the Gophers in as many years, joining current Gopher freshman and Collingwood, Ontario native Sophie Kitchen, who signed with Minnesota last year.
Garrison's signing is Minnesota's second National Letter of Intent of the day. Heather Ciskowski (Barrington, Ill.) signed her NLI earlier this morning and will also join the Gophers next year.
