WOMEN'S GOLF SIGNS MIKI MANTA TO NATIONAL LETTER OF INTENT

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento State head women's golf coach David Sutherland announced today that Miki Manta has signed a National Letter of Intent with the program. Manta will enroll at Sacramento State as a freshman in the fall of 2018.

A native of Honolulu, Manta claimed at least a share of the individual title at the Oahu Interscholastic Association Championships. She was the medalist in 2016 before tying for first last season. Manta has also qualified for the Junior World Championships three times, placing 12th in the 2014 and 15th in 2015. She has also won over a dozen times in Hawaiian Junior Tour events.

"Miki is a long hitter and one of the best young golfers in Hawaii where she had great competition," Sutherland said. "She's a 4.0 student and the kind of student-athlete you want at Sacramento State to help us carry on our success."

Manta will join a Hornet team which features just one senior on the 2017-18 roster. The team placed among the top three in three of its four fall tournaments, including a victory at the Aggie Invitational In Las Cruces, N.M.
