Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - After a great start to the season for the New Mexico State women's golf team, things got even better on signing day. The Aggies landed three recruits that will improve their lineup heading into 2017-18.

The recruiting class includes Tammy Lim out of Clovis, Calif., Kehler Koss from Calgary, Alberta and Tiegan Taylor hailing from Kelowna, British Columbia.

"As a team, we will have three seniors graduate this spring, so all three freshmen coming in will definitely have some playing time to battle for and a chance to earn their way into the top-five traveling team." Said head coach Jackie Booth when asked about the new class. "Each one of them is an excellent student and has also shown the ability to excel in National Jr events. So we're looking forward to them being here and getting adjusted to campus life and school with their new teammates. They will each bring a lot to the table as Aggies!"
