GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina Head Women's Golf Coach Kevin Williams has announced that Faith Hardison and Meghan Moore have each signed a National Letter of Intent to play golf for the Pirates during the 2009-10 season.
"In my mind, this is the best recruiting class we have every signed," said Williams. "Both of these young ladies will make a huge impact on our program from the time they step on campus next fall. Since we do not have any seniors on this year's squad, I am very excited about how much competition we will have among our team for starting spots next season. It will be the deepest team we have ever had at East Carolina."

Coach Williams' Comments: "Faith is a tremendous athlete with great potential. She broke her wrist after her sophomore year which set her back, but she is getting better with each round she plays. Faith has a chance to make a great impact on our program as a freshman."
