Saturday, January 1, 2011

Shawnee Martinez, of Modesto, Calif., has given a verbal commitment to play golf for Long Beach State in the fall of 2012. Martinez also received offers from San Jose State, Oregon State, Fresno State and USC.

Martinez said she couldn’t find a flaw in the school when she took her unofficial visit.

“I love everything about the golf facilities there, and the coaching staff was very welcoming and nice,” she said. “West Virginia CC was beautiful and I can't wait until I am able to practice there with the team.”

Martinez played in the Junior Americas Cup over the summer, and also made the cut at the U.S. Girls’ Junior. A member of the Enochs High School golf team, Martinez finished 13th at the state tournament. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
