Sofia Garcia (2016) commits to Texas Tech

Sofia Garcia has committed to play for Texas Tech beginning in the fall of 2016. Garcia recently won the South American Women’s Amateur in Lima, Peru.

Garcia did not reveal other unofficial visits or offers, but said she became interested in Texas Tech after getting good recommendations about the city of Lubbock, Texas and the school. Garcia hails from Asuncion, Paraguay and liked the similarities between the two places.

“I talked a lot with coach JoJo (Robertson) and I liked her sports proposal,” Garcia said. “And I think my objectives are similar (to the university’s) and I am sure that together we can achieve them.”

Garcia was the national amateur champion in Paraguay in 2014, and is ranked No. 431 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.
