CANYON -- West Texas A&M women’s golf coach Meredith Jameson announced Thursday the signing of Mattye Mason and Avery Struck to National Letters of Intent for the 2014-15 year.
“Both Matte and Avery love the game of golf and are very passionate about the process of getting a little better each day,” Jameson said. “I am excited to have both of them join the Lady Buff squad next year because they are great people on and off the golf course.”
Mason, a native of San Marcos, Texas, and San Marcos High School, signed during the early signing period in November. She was a regional qualifier all four years of high school. Mason fired a 76 and a 78 at regionals as a senior and just missed state, finishing fourth at regionals.
She tied for seventh at the state preview at Onion Creek (77) and finished first this spring at Quail Creek Country Club with a 75.
“Mattye is coming off of a solid senior year,” Jameson said. “She has been improving steadily over the past year due to her dedication to practicing on her own, in addition to what was required by her high school program. She hits it long enough to be competitive at the collegiate level.”
Struck, a native of Halfmoon Bay, British Columbia, Canada, signed with WT in the spring. She fired rounds of 75 and 76 at the Canadian Tour at Langara and a 72 and 76 at the British Columbia Juvenile Championship.
“Avery will come to WT in the fall with lots of tournament experience,” Jameson said. “She knows how to compete and post competitive scores even in poor weather conditions. As a 3 handicap, she should be able to make an impact on the Lady Buff squad as a freshman. She is a very solid putter, which will compliment her distance off the tee.”
