BOISE, Idaho (11/11/2010) - Nicole Harris head coach of Boise State University’s women’s golf program announced this afternoon that Paige Darwin has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Broncos next year. Darwin is a standout youth golfer from Albuquerque, N.M., where she is an honors student at La Cueva High School.

“I’m very excited to have Paige join our Bronco Family. I know she will make a huge impact to an already deep roster,” said Harris. “Without any seniors graduating, we are fortunate to have the same team next year plus the addition of Paige. With her tremendous junior career in New Mexico, I know she will come in ready to compete and push our team to improve even more.”

Paige has played on the last two Junior America’s Cup teams representing New Mexico. In the last two years, Darwin has competed in 13 Rocky Mountain Junior Golf Tour (now called Golfweek Junior Tour) events making the cut in 12. She has won four and placed in the top five 12 times. In 2009 Paige won the High Altitude Challenge Qualifier and placed second at the NMSU Open. In 2010 she won The Rivalry at Raccoon Creek, the Desert Challenge at Socorro, and Golfweek’s Junior Tour at Wigwam (Nov. 6-7). Darwin placed second at The Duel at UNM-NM, The Showdown at Painted Dunes and the UNM Open.  She has also won the JAGS Tour Karsten Memorial (73-76-75).

The Boise State women’s golf team is currently on winter break. The Broncos next competition will be March 7-8 when they travel to the Fresno State Lexus Classic at Copper River Country Club.
