Olympic Sports- Transfers (incoming and outgoing) and other roster news

Per my main source for distance running transfers ( https://www.thestridereport.com/transfers), looks like the women's cross country and track and field teams have picked up another grad transfer for next season (and possibly the season after?) in Ella Baran, who will be heading to Boulder from D3 powerhouse Johns Hopkins, where she recently graduated with an environmental engineering degree.

Among other things, she finished all 3 seasons STRONG this past academic year at the various D3 NCAA Championships, with:
  • a 9th place at the cross country championships,
  • win in the indoor mile*** and
  • 3rd place finish in the outdoor 5000M.
Per her JHU roster pages, looks like she originally hails from Germantown, Tennessee.

Looking at her JHU roster pages, I'd GUESS (???) she could have up to 2 seasons of eligibility remaining in XC and both indoor and outdoor track and field.

Men's golf has announced that its newest Buff is transfer Tucker Clark, originally from Scottsdale, AZ, who will be joining the Buffs this academic year with up to 3 years of eligibility remaining. He was at Notre Dame his 1st 2 collegiate years, redshirting last season as he recovered from injury.

OFFICIAL welcome and congrats to him!

Article on his signing - https://cubuffs.com/news/2022/7/19/mens-golf-adds-notre-dame-transfer-tucker-clark.aspx

BOULDER — University of Colorado men's golf coach Roy Edwards has completed his 2022-23 recruiting class with the addition of Tucker Clark, who is transferring to the CU program from the University of Notre Dame.

One of the nation's top recruits in the 2020 freshman class, Clark played his true freshman season for the Fighting Irish, appearing in all seven tournaments that spring with four top 25 finishes. He redshirted last season while recovering from elbow and ankle injuries and will have three years to play three in eligibility for the Buffaloes.

For spring '21 season (there was no competition in the fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic), he finished fourth on the Irish with a 72.52 stroke average (for 21 rounds), with bests of 65 (7-under) for 18 holes and 205 (11-under) for 54, the latter two being team bests. Seventeen of those rounds counted toward Notre Dame's team score, and he owned a subpar percentage of 21.3 (78 birdies and two eagles for 378 holes played). Clark tied for 20th in his first collegiate meet, Florida State's Camp Creek Seminole Invitational (217, +1), and also led the team in the Stitch Intercollegiate when he tied for seventh with an 11-under 205 effort (65-74-66).

"We were very happy when Tucker told us he was going to become a Buff," Edwards said. "He is an amazing talent who can shoot some very low scores. Tucker was a player who was very highly-recruited in high school and a guy we really wanted then and are fortunate to have now. We look forward to him having a great career here at Colorado."

Junior Golf Scoreboard ranked him as the No. 15 player in the nation for the Class of 2020, based on his high school and junior golf accomplishments. He led Arcadia High School (Scottsdale, Ariz.) to a pair of state titles, and claimed the individual crown when the Titans won the second time in 2018, turning in a 6-under 64 scorecard. In 2017, he was the Antigua National High School Invitational individual champion (70-68—138, -6), with Arcadia also claiming the team title. A nominee for both the 2017 and 2018 Arizona High School Athlete of the Year, he was an Arizona Junior Golf Ambassador six years.

Some of his top amateur accomplishments included wins in the 2020 Indianapolis GCAA Amateur Series and the Junior Golf Association of Arizona Willie Low Invitational; that same year he finished third in the Rolex Tournament of Champions (7-under 71-72-71-67—281). In 2019, he took runner-up honors in the AJGA Sergio Garcia (212, -4) and in the Bryce Molder Invitational (66-70—136, -6), while capturing third in the Arizona Junior Stroke Play (67-72-65—204, -9)

He was ranked 31st in the final AJGA rankings, was a two-time Rolex Junior Honorable Mention All-American (2019, 2020), as he recorded six top five AJGA efforts. Over the course of his JGA of Arizona career, he played in 82 tournaments, with eight wins, 10 runner-up finishes and eight third place efforts. One of his more impressive wins came in the 2018 IMG Academy Junior World Golf Qualifier at Raven Golf Club in Phoenix, when he posted a 67-65—132 score, or 12-under par.

"I am looking forward to joining the team and am thankful that Coach Edwards and Coach (Derek) Tolan have given me this opportunity," Clark said. "I am really excited to get to work and be part of a young team and helping make a run at the Pac-12 and NCAA championships."

Clark cited several factors in choosing the Buffaloes over several other suitors.

"The facilities, Boulder as a town, the coaching staff and the young team were all very appealing to me," he said. "I was blown away when I took my visit, it exceeded all expectations and it just felt like home to me."

Also, on the outgoing side, women's cross country and track and field, who has gained 2 top transfers so far this off-season, has evidently lost one of its other runners, Camille Jackson. Per https://www.thestridereport.com/transfers, looks like she has decided to transfer to the U. of New Mexico. (From what I've read, sounds like the Lobos are considered one of the top favorites right now (maybe behind only defending champion NC State?) to win the NCAA Cross Country Championships this upcoming season.)

Best wishes to her in Albuquerque.
I also just posted about this in a basketball thread post, but since it obviously applies to ALL sports, also wanted to post something here.

The NCAA has voted on official changes to transfer rules. (The below quotes are from the NCAA release at https://www.ncaa.com/news/ncaa/arti...ivision-i-board-adopts-changes-transfer-rules)

A few things:

  • There had been a proposal to allow student-athletes to make an indefinite number of transfers. It's been decided NOT to an allow this, but has (per the above NCAA link) "adopted new, more specific standards for immediate eligibility waivers for student-athletes who do not otherwise meet the one-time transfer exception, focusing on student-athlete well-being or circumstances outside the student-athlete's control"..
  • "NCAA rules now will require any school that considers athletics when awarding scholarships to transfer student-athletes to provide that scholarship for the rest of a student's five-year eligibility or until they complete the requirements for their bachelor's degree, unless the student transfers again or engages in professional athletics opportunities."
  • The athletes for each sport, based on which season their sport competes, now has a more limited designated window as to when they can enter the portal.
Full list of dates for each sport:

The board adopted the following notification-of-transfer windows:

  • Fall sports: a 45-day window beginning the day after championships selections are made in their sport, or May 1-15.
  • Reasonable accommodations will be made for participants in the Football Bowl Subdivision and Football Championship Subdivision championship games.
  • Winter sports: a 60-day window beginning the day after championships selections are made in the sport.
  • Spring sports: Dec. 1-15, or a 45-day window beginning the day after selections are made in the sport.
The legislation also establishes exceptions to the new windows for student-athletes who experience head coach changes or have athletics aid reduced, canceled or not renewed.

(With distance runners having seasons in all 3 academic year seasons, assume they'll still have MANY options as if they decide to transfer, and other track and field athletes compete in both the winter and spring seasons.)
I screwed up and put news of the latest 2 Buff Olympic Sport transfers for the 2022/23 academic year into the (freshman) recruiting thread (https://www.allbuffs.com/threads/recruiting-news-olympic-sports.101643/page-24#post-3357690). Since it's been a few days, decided to keep that post as is/ where is. More detail can be found in posts #691 and 692, but just to put the basic information here:

  • Not officially confirmed by the team yet, but looks like Soccer has picked up a top young goaltender in Jordy Nytes, who will be joining the team after spending her freshman season at Oklahoma State. Among other things, she was named the Big 12's co-goaltender of they year, and after her senior high school season at Aurora's Grandview HS, she was named Gatorade's girl soccer player of the year for Colorado. (Again, with no announcement from the school, don't know for sure, but based on when she announced her transfer, I'd GUESS she'll be in Boulder starting next semester, so should get to participate in the full spring training period with her new team.) Her OSU roster page - https://okstate.com/sports/womens-soccer/roster/jordan-nytes/10393

  • Today, volleyball officially announced the arrival of 6'3" middle blocker grad transfer Skyy Howard, who will begin her grad studies and play for the team in January after earning her undergrad degree this month from the Univ. of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. Her UNC roster page - https://goheels.com/sports/womens-volleyball/roster/skyy-howard/23398
For convenience, figured I'd still re-post a few of the various tweets about their transfers -

Article with more on Ms. Nytes-

BOULDER – The goalkeeper position just became a little more crowded for the Buffaloes' 2023 season. Head coach Danny Sanchez announced the transfer signing of former Oklahoma State keeper Jordan Nytes on Saturday.

Nytes, a Colorado native, graduated from Grandview H.S., in 2022 and spent her first collegiate season in Stillwater. She continues the trend of Coloradans returning to their home state to play for the Buffaloes, adding to the list that includes the recent likes of Civana Kuhlmann, Dani Hansen, Tatum Barton, Sofia Weiner, Gabbi Chapa and Megan Massey.

"Jordan had a fantastic season at Oklahoma State," Sanchez stated. "She has great hands and feet. Her distribution is excellent. Jordan will really grow as a goalkeeper working with [associate head coach] Jason [Green]."

Nytes became the first-ever Cowgirl to earn Big 12 Goalkeeper of the year accolades, which she split with West Virginia's Kayza Massey. She was also the first Oklahoma State freshman to earn First-Team All-Conference and the sixth to be named All-Big 12.

She started all 17 matches she appeared in last season and played 1,475 minutes in net for the Cowgirls. Nytes authored six solo shutouts and was a part of three others. Her six shutouts tied for the eighth most in OSU history. She boasted a Big-12 best .841 save%, allowing just 11 goals against and making 58 saves. Nytes wrapped up the season with a 0.96 goals-against average.

Nytes played club for Real Colorado and led her team to three conference titles and two ECNL regional championships. She led Grandview to the 5A state champions and a 17-1-2 record in her senior season. Nytes went on to be named the Gatorade Colorado Girls Soccer Player of the Year and earned Just Women's Sports All-America First Team honors. She recorded 15 shutouts and allowed five goals in 20 games for the Wolves.

She was listed as a four-star recruit by TopDrawerSoccer.com and was No. 129 on the IMG 150. Nytes was ranked the No. 15 goalie prospect nationally and was the No. 19 overall recruit in the Rocky Mountain and Southwest Region.

Nytes will join the keeper corps which includes Bella Grust, Lindsey Smith and incoming freshman Jamie Campbell.
A couple days ago, the soccer team announced its 3rd incoming transfer for the upcoming season, midfielder Isabelle Eskay, who will I assume be a 5th (Covid) year grad student-athlete for the Buffs after spending her 1st 4 years at George Washington U.

OFFICIAL welcome and congrats to her!!!

Direct link to article about her transfer - https://cubuffs.com/news/2023/3/29/buffs-land-another-transfer.aspx

BOULDER — Colorado soccer landed its third Division I transfer for the 2023 season, adding midfielder Isabelle Eskay the team announced on Wednesday.

Eskay, a Damascus, Md., native, played the last four years at George Washington. The 5-6 midfielder started 38 matches and played in 57 total matches for the Colonials. Eskay started all 18 matches for GW in 2022, finishing second on the team with 1,346 minutes played.

Eskay totaled eight points in her four years in D.C., registering three goals and two assists. She had a career-high five points in her freshman season, posting two goals and an assist. Eskay registered career-highs in both shots (15) and shots on goal (10) in 2022.

Prior to George Washington, Eskay helped Urbana High School to a 3A State Championship and a trip to the 4A State Finals. She was a two-time captain and appeared on the High School All-American Game Watch List in her senior year. Eska was an All-Area honorable mention selection as a freshman and was All-Area First Team as a sophomore and junior. She also picked up Second Team All-State honors as a junior.

She played club soccer for FC Frederick and was a member of the 2017 and 2018 CCL United 2001 Gothia Cup Team. Eskay also was a part of the Maryland ODP team from 2012-2017.

Eskay comes from a soccer family. Her father, Bo, is the Executive Director at FC Frederick. She is the youngest of five children with all four of her siblings playing soccer in college. Her brother William is currently on the US Futsal National team and plays for St. Louis Ambush (MASL), while her brother Jackson played professionally for the Richmond Kickers (USL).

She is on track to graduate summa cum laude with a degree in Biomedical Engineering and a double minor in Electrical and Computer Engineering this spring.
1st noticed on richkern.com, and then saw on her Instagram, and now confirmed on the below tweet that volleyball's Savannah Perry, who already has her degree from CU, is transferring to Tulane for grad school and will be playing vball there.

In addition to her work on the court, Ms. Perry was a BIG contributor in both, I believe, athletic AND general Student government, and was one of a few CU students named early this year as a "Student Leader of the Year" (https://cubuffs.com/news/2023/1/18/volleyball-perry-awarded-student-leader-of-the-year.aspx ).

Best wishes to her with the Green Waves.

Looks like the women's cross country and track and field teams have picked up a VERY nice transfer commitment from this year freshman Natalie Cook, who will be transferring in from Oklahoma State. (Since she ran in both the NCAA Cross Country and Indoor Track and Field Championships this academic year, assume she'll be a sophomore next academic year for the Buffs in those 2 sports. I'm not seeing where she's run outdoor track and field at all (at least per the official TFRRS system), so she may be a redshirt freshman for the Buffs during that season in that sport (assuming of course she doesn't run for the Cowgirls at all the remainder of this season).)

Ms. Cook, who hails from Flower Mound, Texas, was the Gatorade National Girls Cross Country Player of the Year in 2021, and transitioned great into the college scene with a 7th place finish at this past season's (2022) NCAA Cross Country Championships, a VERY good finish for any runner, let alone a true freshman.

OFFICIAL welcome and congrats to her!

Sounds like a potentially very nice pickup (World Top 100 ranked amateur) for the women's golf team, as Sabrina Iqbal will be joining the Buffs for her 5th (assume "Covid"?) year after spending her undergrad years at TCU.

OFFICIAL welcome and congrats to her!

Direct link - https://cubuffs.com/news/2023/5/10/womens-golf-adds-grad-transfer-sabrina-iqbal.aspx

BOULDER – Sabrina Iqbal, a former All-Big 12 Conference performer and one of the top 100 amateurs in the world, will join the University of Colorado women's golf team as a graduate transfer for the 2023-24 season, head coach Anne Kelly announced on Wednesday.

A native of San Jose, Calif., Iqbal is a 2022 graduate of Texas Christian where she closed her Horned Frogs career as the program's leader in stroke average at 72.9, birdies with 357 and rounds of par or better with 59. She had a career-low 71.8 stroke average as a senior in 2021-22, earning All-Big 12 honors.

Iqbal tied for fourth at the 2022 NCAA Albuquerque Regional, recording par on TCU's final hole to send the Horned Frogs to the NCAA Championship round with a fourth-place team finish. She had 21 rounds of par or better and 114 birdies as a senior, ranking as the second-best, single-season marks in team history.

A three-time Academic All-Big 12 selection, Iqbal has two collegiate tournament wins, including the 2022 edition of The Bruzzy in Fort Worth, Texas, where she set at TCU 18-hole record with a 9-under-par, 63, in the final round to earn medalist honors at 11-under, 205. She was co-medalist at the Maryb S. Kauth Invitational in San Antonio as a freshman in 2018.

Iqbal, who used the 2022-23 season to work on her game, is ranked 91st in the latest World Amateur Golf Rankings. She participated in the Augusta National Women's Amateur for the second time this past April.

Iqbal was a four-time Junior Tour of Northern California Player of the Year and won the 2014 CIF state title at Pioneer High School. She won the 2016 California Women's Amateur Championship and was a two-time NCGA Women's Player of the Year. Iqbal made the Round of 16 at the 2019 U.S. Girls Junior Amateur, played in the 2019 U.S. Women's Open and was the runner up at the 2022 Texas Women's Open.

"We are tremendously excited that Sabrina chose Colorado for her fifth season of college golf," Kelly said. She is a very accomplished player and brings a wealth of tournament and collegiate experience with her. We are really looking forward to having Sabrina become a Buff."
Can't find anything official from her new team or her social media accounts, but since I've found the Volleytalk forum to be generally accurate (and there not being motivation I can think of for anyone there to provide misinformation), wanted to note that a thread there (https://volleytalk.proboards.com/thread/94082/pepperdine-2023) says that Buff volleyball opposite (AKA right-side) hitter Sterling Parker will be using her 5th (Covid) year of eligibility to attend and play at Pepperdine

Best wishes to her with the Wave!
As @MarkW also just noted in the off-season soccer thread, the team formally announced it has picked up its 4th transfer this off-season in defender (and also midfileder per the Arkansas roster) Greer Maguire, who it looks like will be a redshirt sophomore or junior*** next academic year for the Buffs after spending her 1st 2 years at Arkansas. (My guess is she's a redshirt sophomore next season. However, even though she didn't play her freshman season with the Razorbacks, they listed her as a sophomore in her roster page linked to below.)

OFFICIAL welcome and congrats to her!

Direct link to article -

BOULDER—Head coach Danny Sanchez added a late signee to his 2023 roster with the transfer of Greer Maguire on Thursday.

Maguire, another Colorado native, returns to her home state after spending her first two collegiate seasons playing at Arkansas. The Arapahoe High School graduate played in 10 matches last season for the Razorbacks.

Maguire joins the list of Colorado natives that have transferred back to their home state to don the Black & Gold. Danica Evans, Morgan Stanton, Megan Massey, Tatum Barton, Sofia Weiner, Gabbi Chapa, Hailey Stodden, Dani Hansen, Civana Kuhlmann and most recently Jordan Nytes have all taken the scenic route to call Prentup Field home.

The 5-8 defender recorded 251 minutes for Arkansas in 2022. She played a season-high 67 minutes against Arkansas State with two shots. Maguire, a two-time SEC Honor Roll honoree, redshirted during her freshman season in 2021.

Maguire played eight years with Real Colorado and was a four-year captain of the club's U19 squad. She made 67 starts and totaled five goals with Real. Maguire was also a part of Top Draw Soccer's 2003-04 YNT Regional ID roster and an ODP Region IV team member.

Her grandfather, Butch Allison, played football collegiately at Missouri and professionally with the Baltimore Colts and the New Orleans Saints.

Colorado will have 11 newcomers to start the 2023 season. Maguire will be the team's fourth transfer joining Nytes (Oklahoma State), Isabelle Eskay (George Washington) and Ally Clark (Columbia).

Looks like another potentially potent pickup for the women's cross country and track and field teams, as per the tweet, Instagram post and blog entry linked to below, the Buffs have signed distance runner Marlee Starliper, who has spent her 1st 3 years at North Carolina State. From the NC State roster page linked to below, she spent her prep years at York HS in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania.
(It will be interesting to see how long she much eligibility she may have***.

Of course, no matter what year she is for sports eligibility purposes, I mainly hope she has happy, productive and healthy times in Boulder as a Buff.)

OFFICIAL welcome and congrats to her!

Blog entry (If that's what they're even called?) explaining her transfer and hopes - https://fanhubtf.com/marleestarliper/a-new-beginning/

More links with info on her:

Latest North Carolina State roster page I could find (For 2022 cross country team) - https://gopack.com/sports/cross-country/roster/marlee-starliper/11733
(Having had quite a few injury issues, probably her top collegiate achievement was a VERY solid 9th place finish at NCAA Outdoor Championships in the 5000M in the 2022 season.

She was one of the top prep runners of her class during her high school years. Copying from the NC State roster page, her accomplishments included
  • 3x Gatorade Pennsylvania Player of the Year for Cross Country
  • 2019 New Balance Outdoor Nationals Mile Champion
  • 2019 Foot Locker Nationals Runner-up
  • 3x PIAA Class 2A Cross Country Champion
  • USATF U20 3200m National Champion
  • 2020 Millrose Games Mile Champion

Dyestat ( https://dyestatxcrankings.runnerspace.com/gprofile.php?mgroup_id=46052&do=news&news_id=593137) ranked her as the #3 girl's cross country runner in the country after her senior (2019) season.

***Although next academic year will be her 4th in college, I'd guess there's a good chance that, between taking a normal redshirt year and then an extra year for either injury redshirt and/ or Covid year, she may only be a sophomore (???) for competitive purposes next year in some or all 3 seasons (cross country, indoor and outdoor track and field) she'd typically compete in, if of course she and the coaches desire it.

(From the NC State roster linked to below, looks like she didn't compete at all in her 1st 2 collegiate years of cross country and indoor track and field, so GUESS that would mean she could be a sophomore next season in those 2 sports. She did compete her sophomore year in outdoor track and field, so did definitely use 1 year of eligibility in that sport. However, looking at this season, it looks like she only competed in a couple races pretty early in the season in all 3 sports, so depending on the exact dates and so forth, this may be a season where she might (???) be able to petition for an injury year redshirt. In any case, I would assume she's not any more than a junior in outdoor track and field.)
Re Ms. Starliper's transfer to the Buffs (see last post for more detail), found a nice detail article on the distance running centric thestridereport.com website on her, and the Buff women's team next season in general -

Earlier today the soccer team announced a new transfer for this coming (2023) season - she is forward/ midfielder Lola Stanley, who hails from Frisco, Texas and will be coming to Boulder after spending her freshman year with the Texas Longhorns. (She played with the Longhorns in the 2021 season, but at least now she is not showing up on their roster for last (2022) season.)

OFFICIAL welcome and congrats to her!

Article on her joining CU -
(The article also covers a new freshman, Ava Priest, coming in. More information on her has already put in post #707 of the (freshman) recruiting thread at

Direct link - https://cubuffs.com/news/2023/6/13/soccer-sanchez-adds-two-more-for-2023.aspx

BOULDER - Colorado soccer continued adding to its roster for the upcoming fall season with the additions of Ava Priest and Lola Stanley on Tuesday.

Priest joins the Buffaloes from down the road at Boulder High School, while Stanley transfers in from the University of Texas.

"Ava and Lola are tremendous additions to our 2023 squad," head coach Danny Sanchez commented. "Ava has the versatility to play almost anywhere on the field. She has great pace and technical ability. We feel she can have an immediate impact on our program. Lola has gained fantastic experience being a part of the program at Texas. Like Ava, she is very quick and versatile. She comes to CU with something to prove and we love that mentality."

Stanley, a native of Frisco, Texas, joined the Longhorns in 2021 as a four-star recruit that was listed at No. 131 overall in the Top Drawer Soccer IMG Academy's top 150. The 5-4 midfielder played club for Solar Soccer and graduated from Frisco High School. Stanley captained her team to a national championship in the 2018-19 season and snagged multiple Development Academy and ECNL Weekly Standout honors. She was a member of the U16/U17 U.S. Soccer DA National Championship team in 2018-19 and was invited to play in the Adidas ESP event at the Portland Timbers in 2017. Stanley has been a part of a 2016-17 ECNL National Championship finalist, a 2016 USYSA National Champion and was part of the 2016 USYSA National Championship Best XI. She played one year for Frisco H.S. as a freshman in 2017-18 but helped her team to the district playoffs while being named Second Team All-Region and the District 9-5A Newcomer of the Year.

Stanley played six games for Texas in the 2021 season, logging two shots and 101 minutes. She will have three years of eligibility left.

The two additions bring the number of new faces for 2023 to 13 with eight incoming freshmen and five transfers.

If they can stay healthy, looks like the women's team will be back in the hunt for a natty. 3 top end type transfer he has gotten this summer
Looks like soccer has one more incoming transfer, Lila Dere from Colorado Mesa U in Grand Junction. She was a prolific goal scorer last fall leading D2 with 23 goals. According to the article she was being recruited by soccer power houses like Florida State, etc., when she decided to transfer. No formal announcement for CU yet, but it seems to be confirmed by her in this article linked below. Looks like she will have two seasons of eligibility at CU.

Dere will be the second soccer player to transfer from CMU to CU, the first being Shanade Hopcroft who is currently playing professionally in England's second division. She will also be the second player on the roster from Fruita-Monument HS with incoming freshman Kylah Celayeta being the other.

I like the add. They always need more goal scoring. SH came from UCCS and provided scoring plus the bycicle kick against stanford. hope Lila can do the same
Best wishes to now former Buff soccer goalie Bella Grust at USC (except of course when the Trojans are facing the Buffs).

Cross country at some point uploaded it's 2023 roster into cubuffs.com (https://cubuffs.com/sports/cross-country/roster/2023?sort=class). In addition to the 4 new women transfers already noted in this thread, it looks like a male runner, not previously noted, has also joined the Buffs. He is distance runner Paul Stafford, who spent his 1st 5 years at Florida State. He also originally hails from Florida (Lake Wales).

(Always hard to know for sure, but looks like he has already run at least parts of 5 cross country seasons (assume one must of have been shortened early enough for a medical redshirt?), so assume if he's running with the Buffs this season on the trails he has at most one year of eligibility. Looking at his FSU (of Florida) roster page below, he might have a couple seasons of indoor and outdoor track eligibility if he and the coaches wanted it, as he did take regular redshirts it looks like in both those sports.)

OFFICIAL welcome and congrats to him!

Somehow missed this originally, but women's golf in late May picked up another transfer in Maria Harrouch, who will be joining the Buffs from Pima Community College in Tucson. She hails from Vasaskolan, Gavle, Sweden.

She's listed as a junior on the CU roster.

OFFICIAL welcome and congrats to her!

The tweet that (belatedly) alerted me to her transfer. (And congrats to her for the academic honor!)

Colorado Women's Golf Adds JUCO All-American​

BOULDER – Maria Eidhagen Harrouch, a two-time Junior College All-American, will join the University of Colorado women's golf team this fall, head coach Anne Kelly announced on Tuesday.

A native of Gävle, Sweden, Harrouch arrives in Boulder after two stellar seasons at Pima (Ariz.) Community College where she earned back-to-back National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I All-America honors. Harrouch was eighth at the 2022 NJCAA Women's National Championship and followed that up by tying for 16th in 2023.

Harrouch won six-straight events during the 2023 season, highlighted by medalist honors at the NJCAA Southwest District Tournament at the Hillcrest Golf Club in Sun City West, Ariz. She clinched the title with a career-best 6-under-par, 66, in the final round. Harrouch was the only player to shoot under par at districts, finishing at 9-under, 207, winning the championship by 10 strokes.

In 16 career events at Pima CC, Harrouch registered 15 top 10 finishes and was in the top 5 eight times. She had three runner-up showings as a freshman in 2022, including the Southwest District Tournament at the Hawk Creek Golf Club in Westworth Village, Texas. Harroch placed third in her junior college debut at the Mesa (Ariz.) CC Invitational at the Dobson Ranch Golf Course.

Harrouch was named the 2023 Arizona Community College Athletic Conference/Region I Golfer of the Year and is a two-time All-ACCAC/Region I First Team selection.

Noticed today that lacrosse has updated its roster for its spring 2024 season, and I THINK*** there may be a new transfer listed. Although she's currently listed as a freshman in the roster (which I've noticed sometimes happens when transfers have just been entered into cubuffs.com), a Google search indicates to me that Eve Hritzuk may be an incoming grad transfer 5'3" attacker who looks to have tallied 4 goals and 3 assists off the bench last season for national champion Northwestern.
(***With her being from Northwestern and that being Coach Elliott Whidden's alma mater, and Ms. Hritzuk's name not being that common, I'm guessing the lax player I've provided info for below is the one added to the CU roster. IF there is a separate Eve Hritzuk who IS an incoming freshman Buff, I apologize in advance.)

Since her stats in the below linked-to Northwestern roster page already lists 4 years of stats, I'd GUESS she may only have 1 year of remaining eligiblity. Although, the stats also show she did only play 5 games in 2020 and 2022 so, if either of those limited seasons were hampered by injury, she MIGHT (???) have a 2nd year of eligibility left if she has been awarded a medical redshirt year..)

Welcome and congrats to her!
