Duo Signs to Tee it Up for Corban Starting in 2013-14

SALEM, Ore.– Corban University head women’s golf coach Ron Sisler announced Friday that he has signed a pair of high school seniors to Cascade Collegiate Conference Letters of Intent, as Brooke Spencer (Oakland, Ore.) and Carrie Wallace (La Grande, Ore.) will join the program and compete for the Warriors this season.

"I am very excited to welcome Brooke and Carrie to the Warrior family," said Sisler. "They will make an immediate impact to our women's team. Both come with valuable tournament experience and I look forward to watching them grow into collegiate golfers."

Spencer, a 5-foot-7 right-handed golfer, comes to Corban after playing three seasons at Sutherlin High School in Southern Oregon. As a four-sport athlete for the Bulldogs, Spencer was a three-time All-Far West League first team performer and qualified for the OSAA 4A/3A/2A/1A state tournament each of the three years that she competed for Sutherlin. During her sophomore season, Spencer finished fourth at the district tournament to earn an individual spot in the state tournament where she finished ninth overall. One year later, Spencer helped lead the Bulldogs to the state tournament where Sutherlin finished third overall and she closed out the season in a three-way tie for 13th individually. As a senior, Spencer posted her second straight runner-up performance at the district tournament to qualify for her third and final trip to the state tournament once again as an individual where she finished seventh overall after carding a career-low score of 4-over 76 in the second and final round.

"Brooke has split time between the golf course and softball field and I can't wait to see what she can do concentrating on golf," commented Sisler. "Her athleticism will be a great advantage as she begins her collegiate career."

Wallace, a 5-foot-6 right-handed golfer, will arrive in the Capital City after playing the past four years at La Grande High School in Eastern Oregon. Despite being homeschooled, Wallace was a member of the Tigers' golf team throughout her high school career where she qualified for the OSAA 4A/3A/2A/1A state tournament as a junior and senior. During her junior season, Wallace finished 23rd overall as an individual before posting a 16th place finish individually one year later as a senior to close out her high school career.

"Carrie is what I would label as a very consistent player, who just battles for every stroke during a round," said Sisler. "Her competitive spirit will serve her well when she hits the links this fall."

The aforementioned duo will join all six players returning from last season, as the Warriors will look to make a run at the program's first conference title this year.
