Two golfers with Indiana state finals experience signed with Indiana University East.
Jessica Cordell of Richmond High School and Shawna Phelps of Shelbyville High School signed letters of intent to play golf for the Red Wolves women's golf program starting with the 2012-13 season.
Red Wolves coach Von Ebeling announced the signings May 11.
Cordell and Phelps both helped their teams reach the Indiana regional level as seniors after playing for state finalist teams as underclassmen.
Jessica is the daughter of Jennifer and Roger Creech.
She plans to major in secondary education.
She has career lows of 37 for nine holes and 75 for 18 holes. She helped Richmond finish fifth at the Indiana state meet as a junior.
"Jessica had to compete hard and play well to secure her starting position at Richmond," Ebeling said. "Since her high school home course and our home course are both at Highland Lake, she will give us experience as a freshman playing our home matches."
Shawna is the daughter of Roger Phelps and Jennifer Phelps.
She plans to major in elementary education.
"I chose IU East because of the location and because the school is great," Phelps said.
Phelps played four years of varsity golf at Shelbyville, helping the Bears reach the state meet in 2009. She has career lows of 43 for nine holes and 91 for 18 holes.
"Shawna has made great strides in each of the last three year by shaving approximately five strokes off of her average each year," Ebeling said. "She has proven she can finish toward the top by winning medalist honors multiple times during her senior year."
Cordell and Phelps are the first signees in IU East's 2012-13 women's golf recruiting class.
IU East is an NAIA program. The Red Wolves recently completed the program's third varsity season.
