PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University has signed Lindsay Harmon and Kristen Rue each to a National Letter of Intent, WSU Women's Golf Head Coach Kelli Kamimura announced Monday. Harmon and Rue are expected to enroll at WSU in the Fall of 2011.
Rue hails from Gig Harbor, Wash., and currently attends Life Christian Academy in Tacoma. Entering her senior year she has earned three varsity letters in golf and two in soccer. Rue has been the District Champion for three-straight years and is a three-time team most valuable player recipient. Rue is a two-time 1A Golf State Champion and was the runner-up last season in leading her school to the state title.
"Kristen is a long hitter and a very solid player," said Kamimura. "I have been very impressed with her demeanor on and off the golf course this summer and she is really going to be a great addition to the program and achieve a great deal of success as a Cougar."
Harmon, from Lake Oswego, Ore., attends Valley Catholic High School, where she has earned four varsity letters in golf. She is a two-time defending Oregon High School State Champion, the first state golf champion from the school. This past summer she earned medalist honors at the Washington State University Junior Open at Palouse Ridge in Pullman. Harmon also set a course record by firing a 61 to finish 13-under par and capture the Oregon Junior Golf Association tournament at Santiam Golf Club in Aumsville, Ore.
"I'm very excited about Lindsay making the decision to come to Washington State University," Kamimura said. "She's a very solid player and really just an all-around great person and good student."
