NEWARK, Del. -- University of Delaware women’s golf head coach Patty Post has announced that high school standout Rachel Lee has signed a National Letter of Intent with UD and will begin playing for the Blue Hens during the 2014-15 season.

Lee, a native of Woodstock, Md. who attends Marriotts Ridge High School, earned medalist honors at the Howard County Championship this fall by carding a round of 73. She also placed third at the 2013 Maryland State Girls High School Championships with a 77-70-147, after finishing fourth as a sophomore and junior.

Lee also was the low amateur and fourth overall after carding a 73-73-146 at the Maryland State Women’s Open, and was a Junior PGA Championship qualifier in 2012 when she fired a 72-74-146. The only female member of the Capital Cup team in 2012-13, Lee posted a 72-69-141 to win the MAPGA Junior event at Shenandoah Valley, and has a low competitive round of five under par 67.

“We are so excited for Rachel to be joining us at the University of Delaware,” said Post. “She will be a great addition both athletically and academically to our young program. We have had the opportunity to watch Rachel’s game the last couple of years and we are most impressed with her desire to be the best. She will bring with her a mature dedication to the improvement of her golf game, and elevate and continue to motivate those around her.”
