NAU Golf Adds a Piece to the Puzzle

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Northern Arizona University's women's golf program adds Jacquie LeMarr to its roster for the upcoming spring. Lemarr transfers to NAU after spending a season at UCLA where she was a member of the Bruins' women's golf team.

"I am really excited about adding Jacquie to our program," said head coach Brad Bedortha. "She is a player that I recruited heavily for years and now that she will be here in January I couldn't be happier. She has a ton of talent, is an extremely hard worker and will help solidify our roster for years to come."

The former Bruin shot at an average of 80.2 during her freshman campaign, posting low rounds of 76 twice during the 2012-13 season. LeMarr's best result came at the Bruin Wave tournament where she finished tied for 60th place.

The Phoenix native was a standout high school golfer here in the state of Arizona at Chapparral High School boasting an impressive resume. During her career she garnered four MVP awards, was a two-time all-city selection and a four-time first team all-state selection. LeMarr also won the 2009 Arizona 5A Division Two individual state championship in 2009 as she helped her team to a state title.

The NAU newcomer was also a three-time Callaway Junior World qualifier, two-time USGA Junior Girls Championship qualifier and a three-time Junior America's Cup team member. LeMarr finished fourth at the 2009 Silver Belle Invitational and won ESPN Magazine's Drake Award in 2009 for best breakout performance.
