Prep golf: Corr makes her choice

Hart golfer will attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in fall

Hart's Jamie Corr becomes the fifth Indians' golfer in past three years to commit to a D-I collegiate program. She accepted a scholarship offer to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo this month.

Hart High senior golfer and 2012 Foothill League Most Valuable Player Jamie Corr said she has wanted to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo since she was a seventh grader.

It’s a school her father wanted to attend and Corr, a bright student, always had an eye toward the academic programs it offered.

The wait will soon be over.

Corr accepted a scholarship offer earlier this month and will play golf for Cal Poly SLO beginning in 2013.

The Santa Clarita Valley’s top golfer the last three years said she was hoping to get into the school because of its engineering program.

That program has been impacted, she said, so she wasn’t certain that she could get into the school.

She received a call from head coach Scott Cartright on Dec. 6 while she was out golfing with her father, John, and sister, Katie — a Hart freshman golfer.

The call went to voicemail because she didn’t want to answer it on a golf course.

“I (later) played the voicemail on my speakerphone and my dad hugged me. The cart girl was looking at us funny,”  Corr said.

Corr said it was stressful during CIF playoffs not knowing what her college future was.

Nonetheless, she made it all the way to the Southern California championship for the first time in her prep career.

Corr, a 4.38-GPA student, is one of the most accomplished girls golfers in Foothill League history.

She won the league MVP as a sophomore and was runner up as a junior.

Corr made the postseason all four years.

She is the fifth Hart golfer in the last three years to commit to an NCAA Division I school.

Her sister, Amanda, plays for the University of San Francisco, Nikki Prichard is at the University of Nevada, Brenna Carlson is at UC Irvine and Kendall Dusenberry is at the University of Maryland.

“It means coach (Renee) Onori and coach Monte (Dave Montgomery) prepared us,” Corr said of having five girls from the same school play for D-I schools. “And our parents played huge roles.”
