Northwest Missouri State women's golf coach Pat McLaughlin announced the signing of Hannah Sears, an all-state selection from Overland Park, Kan., for the 2013-14 season.
Sears finished fourth at the Kansas High School State Tournament this past fall to close out her senior campaign. She was a four-year letter winner and two-time all-conference pick at Shawnee Mission South where she was also a state medalist as a junior.
"Hannah is an excellent golfer and has shown she can compete at a high level," McLaughlin said. "We are excited to add her to the Bearcat golf team and she should continue to help raise the bar."
Northwest is coming off another solid fall campaign and looking to improve on a program best, third place finish at the MIAA Championships last year. Head Coach Pat McLaughlin and the Bearcats swept the Player of the Year honors a year ago, with Freshman of the Year (Steph Charteris), Coach of the Year (McLaughlin), and Player of the Year (Cassie Lowell).
