The Adams County pipeline for Coach Dave Hopkins and his Shawnee State University women’s golf team continued last week as the Bears signed their second female golfer in the past year.  Joining Jade Spriggs from North Adams on the SSU links will now by Peebles High School senior Savannah McCoy, who signed her letter of intent on Wednesday, Nov. 16 in ceremonies at the high school.
“Savannah is a great student and comes from a good family,” said Coach Hopkins.  “I believe her best golf is ahead of her.  She fits in great with our program and for a program that is just in its second season next fall, we are headed in the right direction.”
“When you can get quality kids like Savannah, it’s a win/win for everybody.  I’m looking forward to working with Savannah and watching her grow on and off the course.”
McCoy’s list of accomplishments as a high school golfer are impressive, being named All-County and All-Southern Hills Athletic Conference in both her junior and senior years as well as earning second Team All-District honors both years.  She qualified for the Division III District tournament in her junior, and missed by just one stroke this fall of repeating that feat.  Peebles golf coach Vohn Hoop appreciated the efforts of his senior standout.
“Savannah is the first Peebles girl to sign out of high school to play golf,” said Hoop.  “She played as our number one golfer all year and she led us as far as scoring average and was just really consistent.  Her bad rounds were not that bad and her good rounds were all pretty close together.  She never seemed to hit any really, really bad shots.”
McCoy will become part of the Shawnee State program, which competes in the NAIA Mid-South Conference.
“Before golf was even in the picture, I had always wanted to go to Shawnee,” said the Peebles senior.  “My Grandpa was on the board there and my uncle went there so Shawnee was my college choice but golf just topped it off.  Coach Hopkins called me one day and said he had heard about all of my accomplishments and that he wanted to meet and play golf so I went down to Portsmouth and golfed with him and Jade.”
While at Shawnee State, McCoy plans to study Business.
