Parks To Join UW Women's Golf Squad
July 31, 2008
SEATTLE - Two-time state champion golfer Sadena Parks has signed a national letter of intent to join the Washington women's golf program, head coach Mary Lou Mulflur announced. Parks, along with current Husky Nicole Ferrero, will compete in next week's U.S. Women's Amateur in Eugene, Ore., Aug. 4-9.
Parks, from Puyallup, Wash., and a product of Bethel High School, claimed Washington 4A state titles in both 2008 and 2006. Parks, who also competed in basketball and track and field, was state runner-up at the 2007 tournament as well.
'We are thrilled to have Sadena join the Husky family,' Mulflur said. 'She brings a tremendous work ethic, unbelievable athletic ability and a tenacious attitude. That combination provides her an unlimited opportunity for success in the classroom and on the golf course.'
Parks qualified for the U.S. Women's Amateur at an 18-hole sectional qualifier played at the Portland Golf Club, July 16. She shot a 2-over 75 to finish in a three-way tie for sixth place and earned her spot in the amateur by parring the play-off hole.
Ferrero, a Husky sophomore-to-be, earned her spot in the U.S. Women's Amateur with a runner-up finish at a sectional qualifier in Parker, Colo., July 7. She shot a 76.
The U.S. Women's Amateur will be held at the Eugene Country Club, Aug. 4-9.
