NORMAN — Oklahoma women’s golf head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell announced the signing of two new players to National Letters of Intent on the first day of the early signing period. Joining the class of 2021 will be Kaitlin Milligan and Hannah Lee.

“We are very excited to announce the signing of these two young ladies,” said Drouin-Luttrell. “We have been recruiting hard to get them and know they will make an immediate impact on this golf team.”

She was also the OGA Junior Girls’ Amateur Stroke Play Champion in 2016. At Norman North, Milligan earned Oklahoma High School Golf Class 6A All Star honors, was a three-time all-city first team and recorded a third-place finish at the 2016 Girls 6A State Tournament. Milligan has also held the No. 1 position on the Norman North varsity team since her freshman debut in 2014.

“It will be special having a girl from Norman on our team,” said OU coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell. “She’s grown up around the University of Oklahoma her entire life and to have a chance to wear OU will be exceptional. Kaitlin is also a really hard worker and will fit right in with the culture of our team.”

Lee comes to the University of Oklahoma after spending the past year on the National Canadian Development Team. She has recorded 11 top-five performances in her junior career, including four first-place finishes, with the most recent coming at the B.C. Juvenile Girls’ Championship in 2016. Lee’s career low score is 66 (-7), and she has recorded two holes-in-one in her career.

“Hannah is a really hard worker and her experience on the Canadian National Team will help her transition to college golf,” Drouin-Luttrell said. “She’s played in numerous international events and being part of a team should be second nature to her.”
