San José, Calif.--Elizabeth Schultz, who tied for second at the 2013 CIF/CGA/NCGA State Girls Championship, signed a National Letter-of-Intent to play women's golf at San José State University starting with the 2014-15 season, as announced by Spartan head coach John Dormann.
Schultz, from Lafayette, Calif., and who played as an individual from Acalanes High School, shot a 71 at the state championship on November 20, at the Quail Lodge Golf Course in Carmel, Calif. She qualified for the championship by finishing second at the NorCal Championship on November 4. Schultz shot a 74 that day with an eagle on her first hole.
Schultz qualified for the 2013 U.S. Women's Open at Sebonack Golf Course in Southampton, N.Y. At the Open, she shot a 78 in her first round that included an eagle on the par-4, 398-yard #16, and two birdies. She was just one of 11 players to make an eagle over the four rounds, a list that included former Spartan Juli Inkster. Schultz made it to the U.S. Women's Open after shooting a 74 and 73 in a Sectional qualifier at the Lake Merced Golf Course.
Ranked 258th on the Junior Scoreboard rankings, Schultz began playing the game just four years ago. She has played in several Junior Golf events and was named the 2013 Junior Golf Association of Northern California Girls Player of the Year.
"Elizabeth brings a strong resume and desire to be great to our team," said Dormann. "She has accomplished a great deal in golf while only playing a short time. We see Elizabeth as a top of the lineup palyer. She has a very ceiling, and we are very excited about the opportunity to work with Elizabeth. We are excited to have one of the Bay Area's best players come to San José State."
