Three golfers will be joining the Kansas University women’s team in 2014, KU coach Erin O’Neil announced Friday.
Celia Mansour and Kallie Gonzales signed national letters of intent. MacKenzie Sexe will join the team as a walk-on.
“Celia brings a lot of competitive experience to the table for us and is one of the top players in France,” O’Neil said of the Gueret native. “She plays on the French National team for her age and competes all over Europe.”
Of Gonzales, a Montgomery, Texas, native, O’Neil said: “Kallie brings a lot of tournament experience. She’s competed in a lot of AJGA (American Junior Golf Association) tournaments and Texas is very competitive with its junior golf.”
Of Sexe, from Prior Lake, Minn., O’Neil said: “MacKenzie has a lot of potential to become a great player. She works hard and the fundamentals are there. She spent most of her life in Kansas before moving to Minnesota the last few years.”
Two Jayhawk seniors, Thanuttra Boonraksasat and Meghan Potee, will graduate in the spring.
