Women's Golf - Mon, Jul. 10, 2017
The Indiana University Women's Golf team has finalized its 2017-18 roster with its final two additions of Jordyn "Kyleigh" Roberts and Mackenzi Crosley.
Kyleigh Roberts will play golf at IU Kokomo after playing volleyball (2013-14) and golf (2015-16) at Oak Hill High School where she earned the Golf O-Club Sportsmanship Award (2015) and the Golf Mental Attitude Award (2016).
"Kyleigh played several sports in high school which shows diversity working in a team environment. A mental attitude award winning indicates she understands golf is more than technique to be able to play great," CoachWagner said of what Roberts has to offer.
As for Roberts, "I chose IU Kokomo because it's close to home and it's a smaller campus. I'm looking forward to having the opportunity to continue playing the sport that I love and making new friends."
Roberts also participated in 4-H where she was a Champion Senior Beef Showman and received the award for Career Excellence for Cosmetology.
"Mackenzi is a young lady who cares about 'community' her resume speaks for itself and she will be beneficial in promoting this activity on the team. Winning a mental attitude award shows she knows that golf is not just about the swing but also the emotional/mental parts as well," Head Coach Julie Wagner says of what Crosley will bring to the team.
Crosley comes to the Cougars from Lapel High School (Lapel, Ind.) where she played varsity golf for the duration of her time there (2013-17). She was captain of the team while earning the Mental Attitude Award, Academic All-State, All-County (two years) and All-Conference (one year).
When she wasn't on the course, Crosley was very involved in her school and community. These activities included National Honor Society, the Prom Committee, Spanish Club, 4-H, SADD, the Graduation Committee, Food Pantry Volunteer, Optimist Club Volunteer and a volunteer at the YMCA.
She was also very successful in the classroom as a top Spanish student, top Algebra II student, top Pre-Calculus student, top Biology 105 student, top Biology 107 student and earned the Geometry Award.
She will look to continue this work ethic in academics and athletics when she attends IU Kokomo's Nursing program, "I chose IU Kokomo because it was small enough where my professors would know me by name. I'm looking forward to playing different courses and team bonding."
Roberts and Crosley will complete the 2017-18 IU Kokomo women's golf roster under the direction of Head CoachJulie Wagner.
