“We have a really strong class coming in next fall, and it’s a group that we are very proud of,” Borst said. “It’s a diverse group of players from near and far, who all bring something different to our team. I think Big Blue Nation will love what they all bring to the table. We have big shoes to fill within the Kentucky women’s golf program in the years to come, and I know that these players, along with our returners next season, are ready for that task and more!”
