Catalina Foothills standout Libby Axen announced her commitment to play golf for Embry-Riddle. Embry-Riddle is an NAIA program located in Prescott.
Axen jumped from 31st place in the Division II state playoffs in 2018 to sixth place last fall and she returns as the top senior from Southern Arizona regardless of divisional classification. Axen also helped lead the Falcons to a third place finish as a team.
The Eagles are coached by former University of Arizona coach Kim Haddow.
