Chattanooga Mocs head women’s golf coach Colette Murray announced the signing of Porsche Campbell (Vancouver, British Columbia) Friday. Campbell is the first Canadian to join the UTC women’s golf program.
Not only is she the first from the Great White North to tee it up for the Mocs, she is also the program’s first lefty. As much as her golfing talent, her impact off the course will be felt as well.
“First of all, Porsche has a great golf swing,” Murray commented. “I could watch it all day long. I think she is going to develop into quite a player here.
“I don't know if I've ever had a player that is more excited to be a Moc,” Murray continued. “I think she is going to be great energy-wise for the team. She’s a little more mature coming from a college in Canada.”
Campbell is a transfer from the University of British Columbia which competes in the NAIA. She competed in four events in 2010-11 for the Thunderbirds and has an impressive junior resume.
Porsche won three times in 2009 and 2010 including the 2009 MJT National Tour Championship, a six-stroke victory. She was the 2009 BCGA Zone 4 Junior Champion and won the 2010 MJT Mayfair Lakes with a runner-up and tie for fifth as well in 2010 MJT (Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour) events.
She was a three-year captain for the Notre Dame Regional Secondary team from 2007-09. She also participated in the CJGA Canadian Team Cup and North Pacific Team Matches in 2009 and was a soccer standout.
Campbell joins Isabella Loza and Emily McLennan in the Mocs 2012 signing class. Loza, whose sister is current UTC senior Maria Juliana, signed in the fall, while McLennan was announced earlier this week.
