Wallace Joins Women's Golf Program

BATON ROUGE – The LSU Athletics Department and women’s golf coach Karen Bahnsen recently announced the signing of Alden Wallace from Shreveport. Wallace will join Lady Tigers team in the Fall of 2018.

“I am excited to be adding another quality player from the state of Louisiana,” said Bahnsen. “Alden is from Shreveport which has produced a lot of great players.  She is a very strong player and extremely competitive!  That is what attracted me to her from the beginning.”

Wallace, who attends school at Loyola College Prep, has had a strong 2017, winning the Division II Louisiana High School State Championship with rounds of 75-82 at the tough par-74 Les Vieux Chenes in Youngsville. She also won the AJGA St. Francisville Area Foundation Junior at The Bluffs Champion Course.

Wallace competed in the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball tournament, where she advanced to the round of 32. She was also the Louisiana Girls State Amateur runner-up, with a final round of 67.

“She has great energy, and is an extremely hard worker,” continued Bahnsen. “I can’t wait to see what her future brings at LSU.”

Wallace, a three-time first team All-City player, has been honored by the Shreveport Times as a three-time Best of Preps Girls Player of the Year.
