GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG women's golf head coach Sarah Sargent announced the signing of Kristin Powers (Pittsford, N.Y./Pittsford Mendon) to a national letter of intent. Powers will join the Spartans for the 2013-14 season and is the first recruit for UNCG under the guidance of Sargent.
The 5-11 Powers helped the Panthers win back-to-back state championships in Section V. She played at the Oak Hill Country Club for five years with Craig Harmon as her swing coach. She won the Oak Hill Women's Club Championship in 2011 and was the age group winner of the New York State Junior Golf Amateur in 2011 and 2012.
Powers finished tied for second at the Future Collegians World Tour Newport National Open this past fall in Rhode Island. She was also a four-year varsity letterwinner in basketball for Pittsford Mendon, helping the Panthers win a Section V Class A Sectional Championship in 2011.
