Sarah Robertson, a senior at Grissom High School in Huntsville, Ala., is the first of five golfers Lee coach John Maupin has signed to begin competing for the Lee Lady Flames during the 2013-14 season.

Robertson has enjoyed a solid high school and junior golf career and among her accomplishments were:

Hanceville High School Invitational medalist with a score of 72, field of 73 players;

Orthopedic Center High School Invitational — low medalist; shot 73, field of 69 players;

2012 AAHSAA High School State Championship; shot 79, 76 - 155, fourth place;

Southeastern Junior Golf Tour at Terrapin Hills — tournament champion, shot 77 and 75.

“By signing Sarah, we know that we are getting one of the top female junior golfers in the state of Alabama,” said Maupin after receiving the signed scholarship papers. “She has played a great tournament schedule over the last few years, and her success in those events really stuck out to us.”

Maupin noted: “She has shown the ability to shoot some low rounds against good competition. Ever since her first visit to campus we knew that she would be a great fit for our golf program and Lee University as a whole. I believe Sarah’s best golf is still in front of her, and she has a chance to be a great player for us over the next four years. We are very excited to have her as a Lady Flame.”

Robertson said the main thing that stuck out to her about the Lee golf program was coach Maupin. “Also, after talking to many people about Lee, I heard all good things and I love the Christian environment. Lee was a beautiful campus. The college and its overall amenities meet my needs and wants in a college.

“I looked at Coastal Carolina University, Shorter University, Berry College, Montevallo University, Samford University, and Coker College,” before deciding on Lee, she commented.

“I’m looking forward to starting my next stage in life at Lee,” said Robertson. I’m ready to make many new friends and getting started with my future career. I’m also looking forward to playing golf for Lee and having many challenges that push me toward my goals.”
