Women's golf signs Texas ace
Signee has won a school-record seven tournamentsNovember 25, 2009 · Athletic Communications
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee women's golf coach Chris Adams felt like a kid who got an unexpected present at Christmas when Natalie Chrisopulos, from Rowlett, Texas, called and said she would like to come take a look at Middle Tennessee.
Chrisopulos, who was recruited by a large number of schools, must have liked what she saw because she committed to the Blue Raiders after her visit, and returned her signed letter of intent.
"She is a great player, and we were pretty lucky to get her," said Adams. "She had offers on the table from several other schools. She came up just before signing period for a visit, and loved it. She told me afterwards that Middle Tennessee had the whole package.
"While Natalie is a small girl, she can really hit it a ton," noted Adams. "I expect great things from her. I can tell from her attitude that she is going to work very hard. I think she will be contagious as far as her work ethic."
Chrisopulos dominated District 10-5A in Texas, winning the district title and MVP honors in 2009, and earning All-District honors three times. She was the Rowlett High School MVP in 2006-2009, and was also team captain in 2008-2009 for Coach Steve Parker. Chrisopulos has won a school-record seven tournaments, and shot the lowest round in school history, a 75.
In the summer of 2009, Chrisopulos won five North Texas PGA events, and she led Rowlett HS to their regional tournament the past two seasons.
An excellent student, Chrisopulos is a member of the National Honor Society, and on the Student Council. She will major in pre-dentistry at Middle Tennessee.
