Southwood senior Abby Houlihan became the first recruit for the new golf program at Indiana University Kokomo. Houlihan signed her letter of intent Wednesday at Southwood. Next year will be IUK’s first girls golf season.
While holding or being a part of 15 golf school records while at Southwood, Houlihan will be looked upon by the Cougars as a leader with the opportunity at playing number one right away. ” My goal is to be a better golfer than in high school and shoot par or under for 18 holes”, Houlihan said.
Houlihan was all conference this past season, leading the Lady Knights to their second straight regional and first ever sectional title.
Houlihan said she chose IUK ” because it is a small program at a small school and they have a great radiology program. I’m studying radiology because x-rays and MRI fascinate me”.
