Dec. 31, 2007
MEMPHIS, TENN. - University of Memphis Lady Tiger golf coach Jenny Bruun announced that Leslie Grabeman, a former member of the University of Minnesota women's golf team, has a scholarship with the Tigers and will enroll in January. She will be eligible for competition immediately and is expected to participate for the U of M this spring.
Grabeman, a native of Springboro, Ohio, played in seven tournaments for the Lady Gophers during the 2006-07 collegiate season. She ranked fourth on the squad in scoring average with an 81.24 average. Grabeman had one top 10 finish as a freshman but turned in eight competitive rounds with scores of 79 or better, including a low round of 74. Her top finish came during the DeBarry Intercollegiate in which she posted a two day total of 151 (75-76). During the '06-07 season, Grabeman also tied for 21st at the Rio Verde Invitational with rounds of 74-74-80. She appeared in one event for Minnesota during the fall of '07.
The sister of Ohio State men's golfer Kevin Grabeman, Leslie is a graduate of Springboro High School, where she earned four letters in golf. She was named all-city and all-area for four consecutive seasons and was an all-conference selection as a senior. Grabeman was the medalist in her league championship as a senior and was the medalist in every tournament she played in as a junior.
"I am delighted to have a player of Leslie's caliber join our program," said Bruun. "She is an experienced player who is tournament tested and I am sure that she will contribute to our squad this spring."
Grabeman will have two and a half years of eligibility remaining at Memphis.
