TUCSON, Ariz. – The University of Arizona Women's Golf program has announced the addition of Ellinor Sudow as part of the team's 2021 recruiting class. Sudow is a graduate transfer from UNC Charlotte who will compete for the Wildcats starting in the Fall.
"We are happy to announce the signing of Ellinor Sudow from the University of Charlotte, originally from Sweden," said head coach Laura Ianello. "Ellinor will be a wonderful addition to our team as a graduate transfer and her college experience and talent will help our women's golf team tremendously. She will be pursuing a master's degree in business while preparing for a future on the LPGA tour. Ellinor is a tremendous student and representative of what a college athlete should be."
