DAVIS, Calif. - UC Davis women's golf coach Anne Walker announced Thursday that three outstanding student-athletes - Raegan Bremer from Canyon High School, Betty Chen from Castro Valley High School, and Andrea Wong from St. Ignatius Prep - have each signed national letters of intent and will join the Aggies' program next fall.
"Our 2012 signing class is very strong and will add great depth to our roster," said Walker. "I believe all three players have a tremendous amount of untapped potential and I look forward to helping them both realize that potential and fulfill it."
Chen enjoyed an outstanding career at Castro Valley High School where she captured four straight Hayward Area Athletic League championships, capping this year's title at the Monarch Bay Golf Club with an even-par 71. She also helped lead the Trojans to the team title.
Castro Valley participated in the NCS Tournament of Champions where Chen led her team twith a 76. She captured medalist honors at the tournament as a junior, firing a 71 at Stockton Golf and Country Club to win by two strokes.
Bremer earned four varsity letters at Canyon High School in Anaheim Hills while being honored with All-Century League accolades each season. She was a second-team recipient as a freshman and was named to the first team each year since, including in 2010 when she added all-county honors.
Bremer advanced to the CIF/WSCGA Southern California Golf Championships as a junior as well. Canyon finished 42-2 in team competition over her prep career including undefeated records each of the last three seasons while advancing to section championship play.
Wong has helped lead St. Ignatius Prep in San Francisco to four West Coast Athletic League titles as a prep, earning All-WCAL first-team honors each season along with medalist awards. She finished second at this year's league championship.
She's added a pair of CIF-Central Coast Section first-team honors and helped paced St. Ignatius to top-five finishes in the NorCal Championships each season. Wong is also a CSF lifetime member and a volunteer at the First Tee of San Francisco.
"It feels great to add three California players to the team," said Walker. "They appreciate the excellence of UC Davis and are ready to represent the Aggies."
The Aggies are coming off a successful fall season in which they won two tournaments. They'll resume their 2011-12 season at the Northrop Gumman Regional Challenge in February. It's being hosted by Ohio State and being contested at Palos Verdes Golf Club in Southern California.
