Cooper ready to hit links for Harding University

Thursday, June 19, 2008

Former Melbourne Lady Bearkatz standout golfer Abby Cooper signed a letter of intent recently to join the Harding University women's golf team for the 2008-09 season.

Cooper, a three-time All-State team member at Melbourne, averaged 84 strokes per round as a senior. In three seasons at Melbourne, Cooper twice helped her team to the Arkansas Class 2A state championship.

As a junior, she placed second in the state tournament shooting an 83.

In addition to her prowess on the golf course, Cooper was also a member of the Lady Bearkatz basketball team that made it to the state tournament this year, and she also was an important part of Melbourne's softball squad, helping the Lady Katz all the way to the Class 1A finals a year ago in Fayetteville.
