IOWA CITY — Iowa Head Women’s Golf Coach Kelly Crawford announced today the signing of Chelsea Harris and Ann Vrdolyak to National Letters of Intent to attend The University of Iowa next fall.

“We are really excited to have Chelsea and Ann join our team in the fall,” said Crawford. “Both are multi-sport athletes and I expect them to bring a higher level of competition to our program. Both are long ball hitters and with improved short-games and course management I definitely see them helping this team move up in the conference.”
