WKU Lady Topper Golf head coach Adam Gary announced Wednesday the signing of Lizzie Loy (Jamestown, Ky.) to a national letter of intent in the 2017-18 signing class.
“Lizzie has shown improvement every year since she committed to WKU,” Gary said. “Her hard work and competitiveness helped her achieve a No. 2 rank in the state of Kentucky and make the all-state team her senior year. We are looking forward to having her on The Hill next year.”
Loy was named a first-team all-state selection in 2017 out of Russell County High School, as well as Region 9 Player of the Year. She notched five individual high school tournament wins as a senior, the most of any boys’ or girls’ player in the state.
Loy participated in the KHSAA state tournament in each of her four years of high school and was part of a four-time region tournament championship team.
She’s ranked No. 2 overall in the state of Kentucky and No. 2 in her class by Junior Golf Scoreboard Rankings.
Loy, who committed to WKU as a sophomore in high school, has won more than 50 junior tournaments, including victories on the KY PGA Junior Tour, Hurricane Junior Tour, Golfweek Junior Tour and Southeast KY Junior Tour.
She defended her title in 2017 to win the 53rd Capital City Classic in Frankfort, Ky., and was the low junior in the 2017 Kentucky Women’s Open. She’s also a two-time runner-up in the Kentucky Junior Am and was medalist at the AJGA Qualifier in London, Ky.
