Nashville, Tenn. --- Head women's golf coach Chris Seibel has announced that Sarah Needleman has signed a National Letter-of-Intent with Tennessee State.

Needleman competed on the golf team at Fishers High School in Indiana for four years. She also received Hamilton Southeastern County honors.

In an article posted on school's site, Fishers assistant coach Abbey Rhodes said Needleman has been a leader for her golf team a both on and off the course.

Rhodes continued by saying: "She focused on her goal to play college golf, and achieved it while giving younger players on her team the incentive to adopt her devotion to her team. Sarah is a leader and motivator that her Fishers girls' golf team family will miss, but she's also a radiant example of what can be achieved through focus, determination, positive-thinking, and practice."

Sarah has plans to major in sports marketing in the fall.

"I am proud to bring in a student-athlete who has a solid golf game and is an excellent student," commented head women's golf coach Chris Seibel. "As a coach, it is nice to have a player receive the President's Academic Award. It gives me a feeling of comfort knowing that she will be just fine in the classroom, and we can go full force on the golf course. Sarah is the definition of a STUDENT-ATHLETE."
