Seattle University women’s golf head coach Marc Chandonnet announced Monday that Jamie Huo of Kent, Wash., has signed a National Letter of Intent and will compete for Seattle University starting in the 2013-14 season.
Huo is a three-year varsity letter-winner on the Kentwood High School golf team. She has played in two Washington State Championship tournaments for the Conquerors, placing 18th in 2011 and 24th in 2012. She also helped lead the squad to a sixth-place finish in the state tournament in 2011 and a third-place finish in 2012. On Tuesday, May 21st, she will begin her third state championship tournament for Kentwood as the Conquerors will compete for the 4A state tournament at Club Green Meadows in Vancouver, Wash.
In addition to high school golf, Huo has seen plenty of action on other local junior golf tours as well. She has two victories on local tours, taking first place in the Northwest Junior Golf Tour’s Martin Luther King Open January 19-20, 2013 and the Washington Junior Golf Association’s District Six Championship July 16-17, 2012. She’s tallied 10 additional top-10 finishes in 16 junior tournaments within the last year as well.
“Jamie has an amazing golf swing, a love for the game and the passion and intelligence to contribute to the Seattle University community for the next four years,” said Chandonnet. “We are very excited to have someone locally that cares as much as she does about making SU golf a national presence.”
Huo will be joining Alexus Song (Auburn, Wash.) as an incoming freshman for the Redhawks in the fall of 2013. Song signed her NLI during the early signing period in November 2012.
