LEXINGTON – The University of Kentucky women’s golf program has added three golfers to its 2013 class, head coach Golda Johansson Borst announced on Wednesday. Megan Kinney (Frankfort) Haley Mills (Tyler, Texas) and Alessandra Walker (Paintsville) all inked national letters of intent during the early November signing period.
“I am extremely excited about our signings from the class of 2013,” Borst said. “These young ladies will all bring something different to our program, but they all bring a great deal of passion, determination and a strong work ethic to our program. We can’t wait for this class to join us next year and I know that they will have an immediate impact and help us compete for championships. We couldn’t be prouder to have Ale, Haley and Megan join our Wildcat family next year.”
Walker attends Paintsville High School where she collected numerous accolades during her junior golf career. Earlier in the 2012-13 schoolyear, Walker was the regional and All-A State champion, while also claiming the AJGA Greenbrier qualifier. She was named the All-Area Player of the Year, regional runner-up and Madisonville Invitational individual champion in 2011. Walker is a five-time State Tournament qualifier, All-A regional champion (2010-12), voted on the All-Area Team (2009-11) and was the first woman to compete in the 2012 Paintsville Invitational, placing third.
