Stanford, Calif. - The Stanford women's golf team has signed Angela King and Catherina Wang to letters of intent to study and compete next year at Stanford University, announced head coach Caroline O'Connor.
'I am very pleased to announce these signings,' said O'Connor. 'These two players will bring a tremendous amount of talent and international experience to an already accomplished Stanford program. They will certainly provide us with the additional depth which is needed to vie for championships.'
Angela King, hails from Rancho Santa Fe, Calif., where she attends Torrey Pines High School. She was an AJGA hp Scholastic All-American andhas represented California in the Junior America's Cup, an event pitting top junior golfers from around the USA, Mexico and Canada. King has numerous top-three finishes in both state and national tournaments, highlighted by finishing seventh in the 2004 California H.S. Golf Championships and winning the 2005 Southern CIF tournament last week.
'Angela is very accurate off the tee and has a tremendous short game,' noted O'Connor. 'I certainly expect that she will be competing for a spot in the starting line-up as a freshman.'
Catherina Wang, is from Orland, Fla., where she attends Lake Highland Prep. She is a two-time Rolex AJGA All-American and four-time winner on the AJGA tour and has nine other top-five finishes over past three years.Wang has represented the East squad in the AJGA Canon Cup matches (competition between best East and West players). Her highlight this past summer was representing the United States in the Jr. Solheim Cup (PING Junior Solheim Cup matches 12 of the best European girls against 12 of the top girls from the USA).
'Catherina is one of the best ball strikers I have seen come out of junior golf in a while - she is extremely powerful, with great length off the tee, and has good feel around the green,' said O'Connor.
