Nov. 28, 2012. Appalachian State University women’s golf head coach Heather Brown announced the signing of two student-athletes to National Letters of Intent for the 2013-14 season.
Brown signed two natives of North Carolina as Emily Stinson (Charlotte, N.C./Ardrey Kell) and Hannah Craver (Winston-Salem, N.C./Reagan) will join the Mountaineers before the 2013 fall season.
“It was great to sign girls from North Carolina,” Brown said. “Both players will have an impact on this growing program right away.”
Ardrey Kell High School
Coached by Bart Whitney at Ardrey Kell, Stinson has led the Knights to two state championships in 2010 and 2012 and a second place finish in 2011. Stinson has been named the team’s co-captain the last two seasons and earned the team’s coach’s award in 2011.
Stinson was named all-conference and all-Charlotte Observer since her sophomore season. She is currently ranked No. 14 in the Carolinas with an average score of 80.
In her spare time, the Charlotte native has volunteered with 1st Tee of Charlotte.
Brown’s Comments: “Emily is a player with a great work ethic but especially inherent tenacity. This commitment has elevated her game putting her at the top of her recruiting class. I look forward to see her ‘no quit’ attitude continue as a Mountaineer.”
Reagan High School
Craver has earned all-conference and all-state honors after every season at Reagan High School where she has played under Jay Allred. For her career, Craver averaged a nine-hole score of 36.
Craver is currently ranked No. 9 in the Carolinas with an average 18-hole score of 78.87.
Brown’s Comments: “Hannah is a solid player with natural talent. Her demeanor on the course enables her to keep emotions in check and put together strong rounds. With a sound game and mind, she will be a standout for the Black and Gold.”
