WACO, Texas (Dec. 21, 2018) – Elin Eriksson, a standout golfer for McLennan (Texas) Community College, has signed to continue her collegiate career at Oklahoma Christian, OC women’s coach Greg Lynn said Friday.

Eriksson, from Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, is a sophomore at McLennan, the same junior-college program that produced former OC players Catherine Odgers and Morgan Dockery.

Eriksson has two top-10 finishes in eight career appearances for McLennan and started in last spring’s NJCAA Region V Championship, in which the Highlassies finished second to qualify for the juco national tournament.

In 11 rounds this fall, she has an adjusted scoring average of 80.99, which ranks 36th among NJCAA golfers.

“Elin has a solid record with some good performances this fall at McLennan,” Lynn said. “She will have two years of college golf experience, playing a great tournament schedule that will prepare her to transition into NCAA Division II golf. We look forward to her being an Eagle this coming fall.”

Eriksson is the second player to sign with OC for the 2019-20 season, joining Alyssa Wilson of Yukon High School.
