KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Lady Vol golf has announced Lucia Polo as the first addition to the 2013-14 team.
"I am thrilled that Lucia has made the decision to come to Tennessee," head coach Judi Pavon said. "She is a very accomplished player and is dedicated to improving her game every day."
Polo, an exchange student from Guatemala and a senior at New Garden Friends School, currently trains at the Precision Golf School in Greensboro, N.C.
She recently won the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls Golf Tour Invitational by three strokes, shooting an even-par 142. Polo also claimed the 2011 title when the event was held at Stoney Creek.
Earlier this year, Polo won the Carolinas Junior title.
"She is also a great student and will make a tremendous impact on our team both on and off the golf course," Pavon said.
Polo will enroll at UT in the fall.
