Walnut High girls golfers sign college letters of intent
WALNUT, CA-- Two Walnut High School seniors, Serena Hou and Patricia Wong, signed letters of intent to play golf in college on November 12.
“Congratulations to both of you – we’re proud and excited,” said Principal Jeff Jordan.
Their families, teammates, and coach were on hand for the lunchtime ceremony.
“I’m very excited,” said Hou, who will play at Southern Illinois University.
“I’ve been working so hard all my life to reach this goal and my parents have been very supportive. And now we’re here!”
Wong will play at Pepperdine University next year.
“My hand shook a little during the signing, but it’s a wonderful day,” the 17-year-old exclaimed.
“I feel so blessed for this crazy opportunity!”
Pepperdine was also her first campus visit.
“It went so well, I said ‘this is my last visit - I want to go here!’”
Wong said she couldn’t have achieved the dream without the support of her family.
The Mustang Girls Golf team with Coach Cecil Wood had a perfect 28-0 regular season. The team won the CIF Championship, CIF Southern Section championship, and competed in the state semifinals, explained Athletic Director Jerry Person.
“Good luck in college!” Person said.
