Gealy Announces Seven Golf Commitments for 2011-12
The Catawba College golf teams will be adding a large class in the fall of 2011. Head Men’s and Women’s Coach, Sam Gealy, has announced three women’s commitments and four on the men’s side.
Local standout Madison Kennedy (Salisbury High) highlights the three new additions to Gealy’s women’s program. Joining Kennedy will be Tailar Murphy (Northern Guilford) and Carmen Grubb (Davie High), who round out those coming in the fall.
Kennedy has had an outstanding high school and junior career and should provide and immediate impact on the program. Murphy has proven to be very steady performer and will add depth in the middle of the line-up, while Grubb with some hard work could see playing time this year.
On the men’s side, Pennsylvania native Matt Hardman (Gettysburg Area High) highlights a solid group of five incoming freshman. His 72.4 scoring average this past fall led his high school team, and he is expected to make a considerable contribution this coming fall.
Joining Hardman will be North Carolina products Marshall Ritchie (Concord High), high school teammates Jeremy Kilgore and Logan Ellis (Southeast Guilford), and Brian Donaldson (Clinton High). “This group could be the deepest and most talented we have had here at Catawba in some time” states Gealy. “Each of these incoming freshmen has the talent to compete in the SAC and with our returners we look to be very competitive this coming year.”
