Women's Golf Signs Two for 2010-11
Nov. 20, 2009
CORVALLIS - The Oregon State women's golf program has signed two golfers to National Letters of Intent head coach Risë Lakowske announced Friday.
The 2010-11 recruiting class consists of Lauren Sewell (Renton, Wash./Kentridge HS) and Seshia-Lei Telles (Tualatin, Ore./Tualatin HS).
"I am thrilled to add Seshia and Lauren to the OSU women's golf team," Lakowske said. "We feel that these are two of the best players in this signing class and two of the best junior players in the Pacific Northwest. They represent what is potentially the best class we've recruited in the recent history of our program, and we are very proud of the fact that they are both from the Pacific Northwest."
Sewell is a two-time qualifier for the Callaway Junior World Championships and played in the USGA Junior Girls' Championships in 2009. She is a two-time 4A district champion and was the 2008 South Puget Sound League Player of the Year. Sewell also played on the 2007 and 2008 Girls' Junior America's Cup team for the state of Washington and won the 2006 Washington Junior State Championship.
"They are a great fit for our program," Lakowske said. "Lauren is very mature in her golf game and is very advanced in the mental aspects of her game, and Seshia has one of the best short games I've seen, both are things we work on daily with our teams."
"Oregon State was a natural choice for me," Sewell said. "I want to play in the Pac-10, I really like the coaches and the girls on the team and everything about OSU. It is just a great fit for me."
Telles is a three-time qualifier to the Callaway Junior World Championships and is a three-time member of the Oregon Girls' Junior America's Cup team. She is a two-time winner of the Peter Jacobsen Junior Championship, and won the Oregon Golf Association (OGA) Junior Stroke Play Championship in 2009 and the OGA Junior Championship in 2008. Telles has been first team all-state each of the last three years with top 10 finishes at the 6A state championship each season.
"I'm very excited to get the best player in the class of 2010 from our state in Seshia," Lakowske said. "We really want to continue to bring the top talent in Oregon to Oregon State."
"I really bonded with the team and coaches when I was on my official visit," Telles said. "They were all very welcoming. I've loved OSU ever since."
