OXFORD, Miss. - Head women's golf coach Michele Drinkard announced on Wednesday (April 23) that Sofia Idoyaga (Buenos Aires, Argentina) has signed a National Letter of Intent and will join the Ole Miss women's golf team in the fall of 2014 for the 2014-15 season.
"We are excited that Sofia is coming to Ole Miss this fall and welcome her to the Ole Miss women's golf family," said Drinkard. "She will bring a lot of energy as a proven player in Argentina and will be a player that can have an immediate impact to our program."
Idoyaga comes to Oxford from Buenos Aires, Argentina where she has had a very successful junior career. She currently is ranked No. 7 in the Argentina Association of Golf (AAG) junior rankings and No. 11 in the amateur rankings. Additionally, she's ranked as the 6th best junior player in Argentina.

She has placed in the top 10 in two American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Junior Championships over the last three years. Idoyaga placed sixth at the David Toms Foundation Shreveport (2012) and seventh at the Ravenwood Junior Championship (2013).
"I feel very happy and proud to become an Ole Miss Rebel," said Idoyaga. "I had a great connection with the coaches and after visiting campus and meeting the team I knew it was the right decision."
