The University of New Mexico women’s golf team added two signees to their 2018-19 roster during the early signing period.
Tiana Cruz hails from Ontario, Canada and Kingstown, Jamaica where she has had a fantastic performance this summer and fall. As a junior golfer she was guided under the leadership from Lobo Alumna, Riley Webb at the International Junior Golf Academy in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
“Cruz has an excellent work ethic and she’s committed to bettering herself on and off the course everyday,” said associate head coach, Britney Choy. “She will be a great addition to our team and coach Jill and I? are very excited to work with her next fall.”
Kamie Hamada, who is adding to the Lobos growing list of Hawaiian natives comes to UNM from Aiea, Hawaii. With Hamada’s successful high school season with a scoring average of 75, she will be joining us as a top-5 ranked recruit in the state of Hawaii. She was high school teammates with our current team member, Zoey Akagi-Bustin.
“We are excited to add another player from Hawaii,” mentioned Choy. “Kamie is a solid student-athlete and can become a very consistent member of our top-5 traveling squad.”
The Lobos are excited to have these two additions to their roster in the coming year and have high hopes for what’s to come from these two student-athletes.
