PULLMAN, Wash. - Molly Fuhs and Allison Travis have each signed a National Letter of Intent to play women's golf at Washington State University, Cougar Head Coach Walt Williams announced, Wednesday.
"Both have the experience of competing on the national stage and will bring a lot to the Washington State program," Williams said.
Fuhs comes to Washington State from Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane, Wash., and joins a long line of relatives who have attended WSU. The four-year letter winner was named to the All-Greater Spokane League First Team three consecutive years and tied for third in the championship flight at the PNGA Junior Girls Championship in 2005. During her junior season, Fuhs led her team to a first place finish at the GSL Championship and 11th place at the GSL State Golf Tournament.
Travis joins the Cougars from Eagle, Idaho where she was coached by Michelle Carney at Eagle High School. In 2003, Travis and the Mustangs not only won all of their team matches and tournaments, but went on to become the State High School and District Championship team. Since then, the three-year team captain has competed at both the US Girls Junior Championship and the US Women's Public Links, along with garnering a second place finish as the No.1 player at the State High School Championship in 2004 and 2005.
Although they come to Washington State from different parts of the Northwest, the women have competed against one another before as both were members of the Junior America's Cup. Fuhs competed with the Washington team during 2005, where they placed for 7th at a tournament in Mexico, while Travis is a two year member of the Idaho Junior America's Cup team during 2004 and 2005.
