ASU Women's Golf signs Canadian Sarah Landry

JONESBORO (12/17/10) – Arkansas State head women's golf coach M.J. Desbiens announced Friday that Brossard, Quebec, Canada native Sarah Landry has signed with the Red Wolves and will join the team this spring for the remainder of their 2010-11 schedule.

Landry, a true freshman, will have four years of eligibility remaining at A-State after enjoying a successful high school career at College Charles-Lemoyne.  Landry ranked first in the provincial and 22nd in the national Order of Merit in 2010 while carrying a 73.28 stroke average, and she was the 2007, 2008 and 2009 Provincial Female Athlete of the Year.

"I am very excited that we have someone joining us at the semester break that can probably come in and immediately play in our top five," said Desbiens.  "Sarah is a very mature young lady who we expect will bring a great deal of leadership to our team.  Not only she is a tremendous all-around athlete, she also has a great personality and will be a great fit for our team."

Landry most recently won the first Jocelyn Bourassa Series, which is comprised of three tournaments, with a scoring average of 71.  She was also the low-scoring amateur in the Women's CN Tour in Richmond, British Columbia.  She holds the course record at the Pinegrove Country Club with a 5-under par 68.

Landry helped lead College Charles-Lemoyne to a 2004 provincial championship and also competed in basketball and swimming at the school.
