"We are so excited for Mandi to be joining the Green Wave family," Don said. "I knew her as a collegiate player and her work ethic is second to none. To have someone that played Division I golf at the highest level and already has a year of coaching experience under her belt is a great addition to our program. Mandi will be a perfect fit with our current team and I cannot wait for her to start working with them when they report at the end of August."
