Women's Golf Signs Three
Conway - Coastal Carolina University Head Women’s Golf Coach Katie Quinney, has announced the signing of three student-athletes for the women’s golf program.
Two of the three signees will be freshmen when they reach campus while the third signee will join the program as a junior college transfer.
Alexandra Naumovski will transfer to CCU after two years at Seminole State College. Naumovski originally hails from Ontario, Canada where she has plenty of experience playing international golf.
Of the eight events Naumovski played in her native country of Canada, she finished among the top-10 in half of those. She tied for second at the GAO Junior Girls Spring Classic and finished fourth at the Ontario Junior Girls Championship. Naumovski also had a sixth place finish at the Golf Quebec Junior Spring Open and tied for seventh at the CN Future Links Ontario Championship.
”Alex has already had a great three semesters at Seminole State College to go with her other events, “Quinney said. “She has a relentless work ethic and has learned to win. Alex has also been enthusiastic about becoming a Chant and we are excited for her to spend her final two years at Coastal.”
Tiffany Arafi is another player with lots of international experience. Arafi’s hometown is Birsfelden, Switzerland and she will be a graduate from Montverde Academy.
Arafi had a 74.52 stroke average during six tournaments she played with all of the tournaments coming on the international golf scene. She finished second at the Australian International Ladies Amateur Championship and also finished seventh at the Italian International Amateur.
“Tiffany comes to Coastal with lots of international experience,” Quinney said. “She is a member of the Swiss National Team and is ranked 45th in European Junior Rankings. I have been following Tiffany for quite some time and have been impressed with her ball striking and length and personality on the course. Her improvements have been strong in the past two years and we look forward to watching her continue to stride towards her goals.”
The third signee will also bring a lot of international experience and flair to the Chanticleers program. Jenjra Jinangkul will come to Conway from Bangkok, Thailand. She is set to become a graduate of Trinity International School.
“Meji was our first commit in the fall class,” Quinney added. “She is fundamentally outstanding and I look forward to watching her game continue to develop. Meji has already shown tremendous enthusiasm and pride in joining the Teal Nation and is a fantastic addition to our roster.”
The Chanticleers have completed the fall portion of the 2017-18 season and will jump back into action Feb. 9-11 at the Florida State University match up in Tallahassee, Florida.
