Katie Barrand has given a verbal commitment to play college golf for Boston College beginning in the fall of 2014. Barrand also considered St. Lawrence, Bowdoin, Bucknell and Gettysburg.
Barrand chose Boston College because of the mix of competitive golf and academics.
“I just knew walking onto the campus that BC was somewhere I could see myself,” Barrand said. “It reminds me a lot of my high school on a much bigger scale, but it has a lot of the same core values.”
Barrand lives in Beverly, Mass., but attends The Governor’s Academy in Byfield, Mass. She won the Golfweek New England Junior at Mohegan Sun Country Club in August, and was third at the World Series of Junior Golf.
