LOUDONVILLE, N.Y. - Siena women's golf coach Dave Wronowski has announced the signings of Megan Cahill and Cortney Tilley who inked National Letters of Intent. The pair will join the women's golf program beginning this fall and make up the Class of 2013.
A native of Auburn, N.Y., Cahill is in the process of wrapping up a stellar amateur career at Auburn High. A co-captain on the team, Cahill finished in the top-10 at both the New York State Girls Championships and the IJGT Hershey Tournament. Additionally, she posted a top-20 score at the New York State Public High School Championships. An exceptional all-around student athlete, she is a member of the National Honor Society. Additional personal accolades include being named the Auburn Citizen Player of the Year in 2008, while also participating on the Central New York PGA Junior Circuit.
"We are thrilled to have Megan as a member of our golf program," Wronowski said. "She brings an impressive resume of both state and national tournament experience that will serve her well at the college level. In addition, Megan is an outstanding student who will easily make the transition to college athletics."
Tilley hails from Plaistow, N.H. where she was the captain of the golf team at Timberlane Regional. A top-15 finisher in the 2008 New England Women's Amateur Championships, Tilley also was a two-time runner-up in the New Hampshire State High School Championships. Additionally, she competed and placed in the top-10 of several of the country's top junior tours including the AJGA and FCWT where she placed third overall in the New England Open. A strong student-athlete, Tilley is also a member of the National Honor Society.
"We are very excited to have Cortney not only as a member of our women's golf program but as a member of the Siena community," Wronowski said. "Cortney comes to Siena with the talent, desire and experience necessary to succeed at the Division I collegiate level. I expect Cortney to have an immediate impact on our program's continued success upon her arrival at Siena in the fall."
The 2008-09 version of the Siena women's golf team returns to action with the start of the spring season on Feb. 25 for the Hoya Invitational in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
