VANCOUVER – The UBC Thunderbirds women’s golf program, fresh off its 10th Golf Canada Canadian University/College Championship, will welcome two new members as Catherine Rousseau and Barbara Neto-Bradley have both committed to playing for head coach Chris MacDonald beginning next season.
 
BARBARA NETO-BRADLEY (5’8 | Porto, Portugal)
 
Neto-Bradley comes to UBC as the top young player in Portugal, having won the national Under-18 national championship last summer.
 
She also claimed first in the individual competition at the 2013 Portuguese National Club Championship, while helping her team to a victory as well. Last month, she and partner Sofia Camara won the Portuguese national pairs event, shooting 75-76.
 
Among her other top finishes is a 14th-place showing at the 2013 Irish Under-18 Open.
 
Neto-Bradley, who speaks four languages, is a student at the Oporto British School in Porto, Portugal and will begin the fall as a student in the Faculty of Science.
 
CATHERINE ROUSSEAU (5’6 | Quebec City, Que.)
 
As a player on Quebec’s Junior Development Team, the 5-foot-6 Rousseau was part of the silver medal-winning squad at the 2013 Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Que.
 
She was third on the Quebec Order of Merit last year and won individual and team gold at the 2012 Quebec Summer Games.
 
The Quebec City native will be enrolling in UBC’s Faculty of Applied Sciences.
 
UBC’s 2014-15 season will begin in the fall.
