Mufreesboro, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee head women's golf coach Kim St. John announced today that Tamara Munsch is transferring from Texas Tech to become a member of the 2001 Lady Raider golf team. Munsch, who will be a sophomore for the Lady Raiders, was the Red Raiders' No. 3 player as a freshman in 2000-01.

"I am elated to have a player of Tamara's ability joining our program," St. John said. "She will give us immediate experience and will be one of our top players."

As a freshman for the Red Raiders, Munsch competed in eight of 11 tournaments and had an 81.0 average. Her top finish was a tie for 22nd at the Alltel Huskers Invitational, while her low round was a 73.

Prior to arriving in Lubbock, Munsch was a National High School All-American, the 6-5A State Champion and a three-time all-state selection. The Hays, KS native, who won 17 of 26 high school tournaments, also owns the low eighteen hole state record while playing for Hays High School.

Munsch joins signees Amanda Harter (Hixson, TN),Nicole Biles (League City, TX), Kandace Burnett (Monahan, TX), Kristin Lynch (Tullahoma, TN), Becky Newell (Louisville, KY) and Kemmerlee Pennington (Crossville, TN) to form St. John's first Lady Raider team.
