    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern head women’s golf coach Emily Fletcher announced today the addition of transfer Nicole Zhang to the roster for the 2012-13 season. Nicole joins the Wildcats after one very successful season at Notre Dame and has three years of eligibility remaining with the Wildcats.

    A native of Calgary, Alberta, Zhang posted six top-10 finishes and one victory for the Irish during 2010-11. She finished the fall portion of the schedule ranked 20th in the country by Golfstat.com, making her the No. 1 ranked freshman golfer in the country.

    Zhang led the Irish in 2010-11 with a 74.3 scoring average as she earned All-BIG EAST honors and was named to the NGCA All-Central Region and NGCA Academic All-America teams.

    “I am thrilled to have a player of Nicole’s caliber joining our program,” Fletcher said. “We already have a very talented group of players and I know Nicole’s experience will only contribute to our success. This is an exciting time for NU women’s golf and I am anxious to see what we can accomplish.”

    Zhang’s accomplishments extend beyond college golf as she competed in the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open at Oakmont Country Club and the 2010 and 2011 U.S. Women’s Amateurs. She advanced to the round-of-32 at the 2010 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship.
