The University of Indianapolis women’s golf team has added two local signees to the program for the 2012-2013 season.

Molly Ward from Cathedral High School and Zoey Freese from Southport High School will join the team for the upcoming season. Both signees are members of the National Honors Society at their high schools.

Freese was voted most valuable player  three times in her high school career. She earned two mental attitude awards and won four Junior Golf Foundation tournaments this year. She also was Indiana Junior Golf Foundation tour champion.

Freese said that she looks forward to attending school at UIndy and joining the team in the fall.

“I really love the campus, and it’s right by my house, which is kind of convenient,”  she said.

Ward is a Fishers, Ind. native and will join the team as one of the top golfers from her school.

She qualified for four IHSAA Girls Golf State Championships, the only athlete from her high school ever to achieve this honor.  She also qualified for the 2011 U.S. Girls Junior Championship.

Sophomore Brianna Scheidler is confident in her new teammates.  She believes they know how to play the game well and will be a good fit for the program.

Freese and Ward are the only two players on the team to sign from local high schools.

“There was a lot of good competition locally this year,” Freese said. “A lot of the top girls in the state were from the Indianapolis area.”

The signees had an idea that Head Coach Brent Nicoson was interested in adding them to the UIndy team. Freese, in particular, felt that Nicoson’s interest in her game increased her level of play.

“It’s kind of actually cool to think that someone really wants you to go to their college,” she said.

Scheidler said the team anticipates the addition of these two talented golfers. She looks forward to seeing the type of talent the two additions will bring to the team.

With the addition of  Ward and Freese for the upcoming fall season, UIndy will head to the course with a team of three juniors, three sophomores and two freshmen.
