Cal Poly women's golf head coach Sofie Aagaard has signed a pair of California high school golfers - one from each half of the state - to a National Letter of Intent.
Kaylyn Noh of Rocklin High School and Kamille Dimayuga of Troy High School in Fullerton will be the newest additions to the Mustang women's golf roster next fall. Both qualified for the 2019 California State High School Girls Championship at Poppy Hills and shared 28th place with rounds of 78.
"We are excited to announce the signings of two great players for fall 2021 and one of the strongest recruiting classes I’ve seen for our women’s golf program," said Aagaard. "Both of these new Mustangs are competitive, motivated, hardworking, and with goals set high for both golf and school. They will be great additions to our already strong competitive team, and I see them being strong challengers for our top-five lineup right away in their freshman year next fall."
The signing period for all sports except football opened Wednesday and ends August 1.
Noh helped Rocklin to the CIF-Sac-Joaquin Section finals, Masters Tournament and NorCal Championships, carding a 75 in the Masters at Spanos Park in Stockton and a 74 on the NorCal finals at El Macero.
On the junior circuit, Noh claimed first place in the Folds of Honor Junior Championship last February with rounds of 78 and 73 at Rancho Murieta and also earned a second, third and fourth in Junior Golf Association of Northern California events held last summer.
She also won 13 tournaments in The First Tee of Greater Sacramento events over the past four seasons, along with seven seconds and six thirds, and notched Player of the Year honors in 2019.
"Kaylyn is a powerful player, a long hitter, with high standards for herself on and off the golf course," said Aagaard. "She has an unmatched passion for the game of golf, not afraid of working hard and to challenge herself to get better. She is ranked 20th in the 2021 recruiting class in California.
Kaylyn got started with golf at an early age, through the First Tee and Little Linksters junior programs, and has developed into a great player," Aagaard added. "Not only does Kaylyn add low scores to a team, she is also a strong leader who is all about building a successful team. Kaylyn’s academic successes and records are just as strong as her competitive golf records and she’ll be an outstanding Mustang come next fall."
Dimayuga, who helped Troy to the 2018 CIF California state championship, claimed first place in the inaugural NHSGA High School Golf National Invitational in June 2019 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, with a pair of 71s.
Dimayuga sank a birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff to beat South Carolina and lead the California team to the title at the event in Florida.
Last fall, Troy made another run at a state championship, winning the CIF-Southern Section Eastern Division team title for the fourth consecutive year and posting a strong second-place finish at the CIF-SCGA Qualifier at Western Hills Country Club in Chino Hills. Dimayuga shot a 75 in the latter event.
Troy finished second to Palo Alto in the state finals. Dimayuga went on to earn first-team All-Orange County honors as selected by the Orange County Register.
On the Southern California PGA Junior Tour from 2012-18, Dimayuga won 25 tournaments along with 17 second-place finishes and 17 thirds. In 2015 she finished fifth overall and third in her age group (12-13) for SCPGA Junior Tour Player of the Year honors.
"Kamille is bringing to this team a great competitive record and lots of experience in nationally strong fields of tournament play," said Aagaard. "She is ranked ninth in the 2021 recruiting class in California and 52nd nationally. She is used to competing with the very best. She performs well under pressure and is very familiar with under par rounds in competition.
"Kamille’s high level of golf skills, sound technical fundamentals and golf IQ will all serve her well as she transitions into Division I college golf," Aagaard added. "Her golf accolades and results already set her apart and, adding to this, she is an excellent student who will fit in well at Cal Poly, striving for excellence both on the golf course as well as in the classroom.”
