MOBILE, Ala—The University of Mobile women’s golf program announced the addition of Alma Bryant High School star Devin Pigford for the 2011-12 season.
“I’m looking forward to working with Devin and watching her golf game mature over the next year,” UMobile Head Coach Colby Odom said.
Pigford finished 3rd with an 80 at the 2011 girls Class 6A Section 1 golf tournament and led Alma Bryant to a 2nd place finish. Alma Bryant finished 4th at the 2011 AHSAA Golf Championship, with Pigford placing 9th individually with a 159 (85, 74).
In 2010, Pigford qualified for the State Championship as an individual and finished tied for 8th with a 16-over 160 (83, 77).
“The goal of any team is to compete for championships, and I like that Devin has championship experience in high school,” Odom said. “That should make her transition to the collegiate game easier.”
