Rosen Set to Join UVa Women's Golf Team
Charlottesville, VA – Virginia women’s golf coach Kim Lewellen announced today junior golfer Portland Rosen (Sugar Land, Texas) has signed a national letter of intent to enroll at Virginia and play for the Cavaliers next fall. Rosen is ranked the No. 30 junior player in the nation for the class of 2010 according to Golfweek.
“This is always an exciting day for a coach. You spend a lot of time on the road watching junior golf to find that perfect fit for your program and I feel Portland is that fit,” Lewellen said. “She brings to the team a combination of athleticism, commitment, experience, and heart. She will compliment the current players and help continue the tradition of the Virginia women’s golf program.”
Rosen completed a remarkable junior season at Houston’s Clements High School last spring. She won every tournament she entered, including the 5A state championship by five shots. Her first-place performances included repeat titles at the Region 3 and District 23 championships. She helped her team to the Region 3 title for the second straight season.
Rosen competed in the U.S. Girls Junior Amateur Championships in 2008 and 2009. She was the Houston Links Magazine and Houston Chronicle’s golfer of the year for 2009.
Portland will become the third sibling in her family to play collegiate sports. Her older sisters both played Division I softball. Jorden competed at Syracuse and Courtney played at Florida State.
