HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. – Head coach Daryl Landrum received a commitment from Lillian Young to join the Northern Kentucky University women’s golf team next fall. Young brings a championship pedigree to a program that finished runner-up in the Horizon League Championship last season.
A native of Waddy, Kentucky (Shelby County HS), Young has won four tournaments during her prep career and finished runner-up in last season’s 5th Region Championship.
Young won the 2014 and 2016 Gene Hilen Invitational. She also won both the 2015 Trusted Choice Big I State Qualifier and 2016 Golfweek hosted by Western Kentucky University, while finishing runner up in the 2015 and 2016 5th Region Championship.
