Lock Haven announces the program’s first women’s golf recruit

LOCK HAVEN — During the fall of 2020, Lock Haven University athletics will usher in another new era as the women’s golf team will compete for the very first time. Tuesday coach Chad Anthony announced Ashley Lawson as the program’s first-ever recruit.

It’s a historic moment for LHU women’s golf and Lawson will forever be remember as the Bald Eagles’ first official recruit, as she looks forward to teeing it up in the fall while wearing the crimson and white.

Anthony was named LHU’s first-ever women’s golf coach on March 2 after it was announced in August 2018 that the university would be adding women’s varsity golf.

Lawson, a native of Limerick and graduate of Spring-Ford High School, is former Pioneer Athletic Conference qualifier. Her planned major is athletic training.

“I am thrilled to have Ashley as one of the founding members of the LHU women’s golf team,” Anthony said. “Ashley’s experience and confidence give her the potential to quickly become a leader for our program.”
