Meet The Beavers: Lauren Sewell
April 24, 2012
Lauren Sewell has had no trouble adjusting to competition at the collegiate level as she has played in every tournament since arriving at Oregon State last season and has provided a young and talented lineup that includes fellow sophomore Seshia Telles and freshman Anica Yoo.
Sewell has been as consistent as anyone on the Beavers' lineup after posting a 77.48 scoring average in her freshman campaign that is nearly identical to the 77.45 she has thus far this season heading into this weekend's Pac-12 Women's Golf Championship.
The native of Renton, Wash., has carded three subpar rounds, including a career-best 3-under 69 at last year's PING/ASU Invitational in Tempe, Ariz., and has two career top-10 finishes after finishing in a tie for seventh at the Peg Barnard Invitational this past February.
Looking back at Sewell's high school career, it's easy to see why she has been a regular in the Beavers' lineup since joining the team. She was a four-year letter winner at Kentridge High School in Kent, Wash., and made the All-League First Team all four years.
In the classroom, she carries a 3.31 GPA in Psychology, which isn't surprising considering she won the Presidential Award for Academic Excellence after finishing high school with a 3.60 GPA.
As only a sophomore, Beaver Nation should be excited about the current success of the women's golf team and what lies ahead in the future with successful student-athletes like Sewell on the team.
