Dehning chooses USI to continue collegiate career
EVANSVILLE, Ind.—The University of Southern Indiana women's golf team announced that junior Angela Dehning (Hazel Crest, Illinois) has signed a national letter of intent to play for Head Coach Don Bisesi's Screaming Eagles in 2008-09.
Dehning is transferring from Rend Lake College where she helped the Warriors to a seventh-place finish at the 2008 NJCAA National Championship by finishing 25th. She was 22nd at the 2007 NJCAA National Championship to lead the Warriors to a fifth-place showing.
A two-time All-Region XXIV competitor, Dehning led Rend Lake to the 2008 region championship by winning the individual crown with a two-day score of 157 (75, 82).
Dehning graduated from Illiana Christian High School where she earned 10 varsity letters in golf, basketball, and softball. She was the only women's golfer to win the Southtown Newspaper High School Tournament all four years.
A winner of numerous IJGA regional tournaments, Dehning was The Times Newspaper prep athlete of the week for golf in 2005. She also excelled on the basketball court where she helped lead ICHS to a fourth-place finish at the 2004 IHSA State Tournament.
"I think Angela can definitely be an impact player," Bisesi said. "I'm happy to have her on the team and am looking forward to working with her in the fall."
Dehning joins freshman Lindsey Carr
(Frankfort, Illinois), who signed a national letter of intent during the early signing period, on USI's list of incoming players for the 2008-09 season. The two join a USI squad that has qualified for the NCAA II East Region Tournament four times in the last five years.
