WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Women's Golf Coach Katie Brophy announced today the signing of two student-athletes to National Letters-of-Intent to attend school and play for the Hoyas starting with the 2014-15 academic year.
Joining Brophy and the Georgetown women's program are Jacquelyn Eleey (Quincy, Mass./The Taft School) and Lauren Gros (Windermere, Fla./Windermere Prep). Both players are ranked among the Golfweek Top 100, with Gros at No. 46 and Eleey at No. 68.
"I'm very excited to have both Jacqueline and Lauren join our program," Brophy said. "They are talented players who have competed at the highest level on the junior circuit and they will be great additions to our team."
Eleey posted three top-10 American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) finishes, including winning the qualifier and finishing in third place at the David Leadbetter Championship in Ellicott City, Md. She also posted a fifth place finish at the William Penn Junior Championship in Elverson, Pa. and finished in eighth place at the AJGA Killington Junior in Vermont.
Gros had an impressive summer on the AJGA Tour in 2013, winning two events and finishing among the top-10 five times. She won the HJGT Falcon's Fire (Girls 15-18) with scores of 68-67-67 and then won the Orange Lake Junior Open with scores of 69-74. In addition, she placed seventh at the AJGA Annapolis Junior (70-77-81), sixth at the AJGA Hank Haney IJGA Junior Open (74-72-75) and in third place at the Florida Junior Tour (77-73). Lauren also made it to the first round of the US Girl's Junior Championship in Fort Wayne, Ind. this summer.
The Georgetown women's golf team opens the 2014 spring season up on March 2, competing in the Kiawah Island Invitational in South Carolina.
