NORMAN, Okla.-- University of Oklahoma women's golf coach Carol Ludvigson announced a pair of additions to the Sooners' roster. Ellen Mueller (Evansville, In.) and Jillian Gregston (Duncan, Okla.) have signed National Letters of Intent for the 2007-08 season.
"I am thrilled to have Ellen and Jillian joining us next season," Ludvigson said. "Both golfers are well-disciplined and accustomed to success. Their competitveness and desire to win will fit well here with the University of Oklahoma."
Mueller heads to Norman with a slew of achievements. The Reitz Memorial senior led her high school squad to four straight Indiana state championship appearences and placed in the top 10, individually, each year. Mueller has earned all-city, all-conference and all-state nods each year of her high school career. Not a stranger to competition, Mueller has donned medalist honors 36 times and finished in the quarterfinals at the 2006 U.S. Girls' Junior. Mueller competed in the Future Collegian's World Tour four straight years. She was most recently recognized by FCWT as a recipient of the 2006 "For the Good of the Game" Award. Mueller plans to study health sciences to pursue a career in physical therapy.
"Ellen has a strong idea of how to compete," Ludvigson said. "Her resume speaks to her abilities and we know that success will continue for her as a Sooner."
Gregston, who attends Duncan High School, has been a member of the varsity squad since her freshman year. The Oklahoma native finished in the top three in several Junior PGA tournaments this fall. Gregston joins the Sooners with tournament experience. A member of American Junior Golf Association and the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour, Gregston has become involved in the AJGA youth leadership club. She earned medalist honors in the OJGT tournament at Trosper Park this year. Gregston's high school team have been awarded state academic honors for three straight years and earned first place in state conference and state regionals in 2006.
"Jillian will be a great addition to our Sooner family and we always like to keep our Oklahoma kids in state. She comes from a family of OU alumni and is well grounded in the Oklahoma tradition."
