Women's Golf Inks Two
RENO, Nev. Alex Borcherts of Las Vegas, Nev., and Jamie Yam of San Diego, Calif., have signed national letters of intent to study and play golf at the University of Nevada beginning in 2008-09, first-year Wolf Pack women’s golf coach Adam Pohll announced Wednesday.
Borcherts comes to Nevada from Centennial High School in Las Vegas. She won the 2007 Nevada 4A state high school championship and carries a perfect 4.0 grade-point average.
Yam is a senior at Rancho Bernardo High School in San Diego, Calif. A three-time CIF qualifier, she was selected as her team MVP and served as a team captain. She has also earned a 3.98 GPA.
Both student-athletes have turned in impressive junior golf resumes. Yam has earned a full exemption with the American Junior Golf Association and is ranked among the top 50 players in the country for the Class of 2008, while Borcherts is ranked in the top 100 nationally. Both Borcherts and Yam also qualified for the Junior World Championship and the United State Golf Association Girls Championship.
“We are very excited that Alex and Jamie chose Nevada. For us to get two players of their caliber is huge for us, and I expect them to make significant contributions to our team,” Pohll said. “They are both very strong academically and bring strong national golf experience to the table.”
