"I think Amy is the best player in the state and we are very excited to have her," Williams said. "She is going to make an immediate impact for the Cougs."
Black, who attends Summit High School in Bend, Ore., played in the Junior Americas Cup the past three years. She led her high school to the State championship in each of the past three seasons, finishing seventh individually last year and being named to the All-State team the past two years.
"Jessica Black is a very strong player and has a whole lot of potential to be a very good player down the road for us," Williams said.
As a freshman, Black, earned medalist honors at the Oregon State Junior Match-Play Championships and won the Oregon Junior Stroke-Play Championships. The next year, Black repeated her title at the Oregon State Junior Match-Play Championships and the Peter Jacobsen Junior Championships.
