BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Katya Case, who was the 2012 Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges medalist in women's golf, has accepted an offer of admission from Western Washington University and will compete for the Vikings this fall. Making that announcement was WWU coach Bo Stephan.
The 22-year-old Case is transferring from Bellevue Community College where she helped the Bulldogs to the NWAACC title last spring, the schools first in women's golf. Case took medalist honors six times that season, winning the NWAACC title by 10 strokes.
Case was a first-team NWAACC all-star as a sophomore and second-team choice as a freshman.
A graduate of Enumclaw High School, Case was the district medalist as a senior in helping the Hornets to the Class 3A state tournament. She competed at state in each of her last three seasons, EHS losing just one regular-season match during her four-year career.
Case also competed in track and basketball at EHS, helping the hoop squad to state as a senior while earning second-team South Puget Sound League all-star honors.
A secondary education major, Case was an assistant varsity girls basketball coach and head junior varsity coach at Redmond High School the last two years. Her father, Bruce, played basketball at University of Washington and professionally in Australia, and her sister, Kelsey, played volleyball at University of Rhode Island.
