Youngstown State Head Women's Golf Coach Nate Miklos has announced the signing of two student-athletes who have joined the YSU program for the 2018-19 season.
Britney Jonda, a native of nearby Boardman, Ohio, was named First-Team All-AAC in each of her four seasons at Boardman High School. She posted a nine-hole scoring average of 39 as a senior and was named Honorable Mention All-Northeast Ohio each of her final two seasons. She notched a low nine-hole score of 36 and a low 18-hole mark of 78 during her senior campaign. Jonda's high school teammate, Jenna Vivo, will also be a freshman for the Penguins this season.
Victoria Grans, a native of Stockholm, Sweden, has become the third international golfer on YSU's 2018-19 roster. She joins Puthita Khuanrudee and Rattika Sittigool of Thailand, who each signed National Letters of Intent to join the program last fall. Grans is currently ranked in the top 50 of 21-and-under Swedish female golfers. She posted a tournament average of 77 during her prep career and was named as the 2018-19 recipient of the Northeast Ohio Presidents' Cup Scholarship at YSU.
Comments from Coach Miklos:
"I am very excited to add Britney and Victoria to the team this fall. While it was late in the recruiting calendar, both Britney and Victoria impressed us with their games and we are thrilled to have them join us. Britney had a great career at Boardman and we look forward to having that continue with us. Victoria caught our eye with her impressive play and strong academics, making her the perfect fit to round out our 2018 recruiting class. Along with our other three signees from the fall, we feel very confident about this class and the future of Penguin golf."
