Women's golf signs Colombian junior champion


August 26, 2010

Arizona State women's golf coach Melissa Luellen announced today that Bogota, Colombia native Daniela Ordoñez has signed a letter of intent to study and play golf for the Sun Devils.

"Good things come in small packages," said Lullen. "Daniela is a top junior golfer in Colombia and caries a +1 handicap."

Ordoñez was the 2008 National Colombian Junior Champion and the 2009 Chilean Junior Champion. Just this year, the future Sun Devil finished in fifth place at the 2010 Colombian Open, competing with an amateur exemption in the professional event.

"When the other coaches saw her play at this summer's US Junior Girls Championship," said Lullen, "they were envious that we had her commitment to be a Sun Devil."

Ordonez qualified for match-play at the US Junior Girls Championship with a 77-78 in the two-round qualifier.

Luellen is excited for the dynamic Ordonez will add to the squad.

"She is a fiery competitor and will bring a ton of enthusiasm to ASU golf."
