McCready Signs with Oregon Women's Golf

Nov. 21, 2002

EUGENE, Ore. - The University of Oregon women's golf team has signed Kimberly McCready from Placerville, Calif., to a National Letter of Intent, head coach Shannon Rouillard announced Thursday.

McCready, a senior at Union Mine High School, has been dominant on the Northern California junior tour. In 2002 alone, she has won five tournaments and finished second three times.

'Kim is a great addition to the foundation of this team,' said Rouillard. 'She will be one more solid young golfer who will help get this program where we want it to be in the future.

'She's a player who gets better as a round goes on and is mentally tough,' said Rouillard. 'She hates to lose and I really like that about her.'

McCready won the Northern California high school individual championship earlier this month by shooting a 2-under 70 at Butte Creek Country Club in Chico, Calif. She won the 2001 Sierra Valley Conference championship by carding a course record 67 at Castle Oaks Golf Course. On the national scene, she tied for 15th at last summer's junior amateur championships and was runner-up in the California state junior amateur tournament.

Oregon will graduate two seniors next spring, former trackster Annie Davis, as well as Kim Melrose.
