UC is proud to announce the signing of Annabeth McKay for the fall of 2013.  Annabeth attends Tascosa High School and hails from Amarillo, Texas.  While participating in golf there, Annabeth has played the number one seed on the team for the past three years.  She also won numerous awards and participated in the Jr PGA tournament with five wins.
