July 11, 2011
The University of South Florida women’s golf team has signed four transfers for the 2011-12 season, head coach Marci Kornegay announced Monday. Christina Miller, Amy West, Kelsey Gibson and Anna Hancock have enrolled in summer classes at USF and will be eligible to compete beginning this fall. All four Bulls hail from the Tampa area and are returning to complete their collegiate golfing careers.
“Each one of these players have proven themselves as true competitors and they are each looking for the opportunity to further develop their games,” Kornegay said.  “USF is their new home and we are glad to have them. I can’t wait to get started and see this team compete and win.”

Miller, a native of Bradenton, Fla., played her freshman season at Ole Miss, competing in six tournaments and averaging 79.28 strokes per round. Her best finish was a tie for 31st at the Suzie Maxwell Burning Classic. As a high school student at Pendleton High School, she won four Future Collegian World Tour events and placed as high as third in the FWSGA Women’s State Amateur.
West competed as a freshman and sophomore at Daytona State College, where she was the NJCAA national runner-up in 2010 and placed in the top five in 2011. She also compiled multiple top-15 individual finishes over a two-year span. The Valrico, Fla., native will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2011-12 season. She played her high school golf at Durant High School.
Gibson, from Thonotasassa, Fla., played in seven tournaments for Southern Miss as a freshman, carding an average of 79.2 strokes per round and placing as high as fourth individually. She attended Tampa Prepatory School where she earned six All-County honors. As a junior player, she was twice named Central Florida Tour Player of the Year and won a total of 18 tournaments.
Hancock joins the Bulls after two years at Stetson University. As a freshman in 2009-10, Hancock played in 12 tournaments including the NCAA East Regional, posting a scoring average of 77.2 strokes per round. The Lakeland, Fla., native’s registered three top-10 finishes as well. She did not compete collegiately last season, playing amateur events throughout the state.
Brie Heinzler, who transferred from Furman after the fall 2010 semester, will also be eligible to compete this fall, which gives the Bulls an additional new face looking for a spot in the tournament lineup.
