Alameda High’s Grace Na — who won medalist honors at the California Interscholastic Federation state golf championships on Nov. 16 — is graduating early and joining the Waves women’s golf team in time for the spring season, Pepperdine coach Laurie Gibbs announced Wednesday.
Na will begin classes at Pepperdine in January and play in her first collegiate tournament at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge Feb. 14-16 at Palos Verdes Country Club. Na is No. 9 in the national Golfweek/Sagarin junior girls rankings.
“We are very excited to add Grace to our roster in the spring,” Gibbs said. “She is an excellent student and a very talented golfer that I believe will be successful at the college level immediately.”
