WAYNE – With the Wayne State College women’s golf program currently in-between seasons, head coach Joey Baldwin has added to the 2022-23 recruiting class.

According to a release from Wayne State Athletics, Saffire Sayre from West Des Moines, Iowa has signed a national letter of intent to attend Wayne State College and play women’s golf for the Wildcats in the 2022-23 academic year.

Coach Baldwin is in his second year leading the WSC women’s golf program.

“I am very excited to welcome Saffire to our team,” commented Coach Baldwin.  “She has had so much success as a junior golfer in Iowa and I can’t wait to watch her continue her success as a Wildcat.  I believe Saffire has the talent and work ethic to come in and have a big impact on our program right away.  She is very smart and will be a great addition to Wayne State in the classroom as well.”

Saffire Sayre is from Valley High School in Iowa where she is a four year starter in golf. Last spring as a junior, she averaged 75.5 for 18 holes and helped her team win the Iowa Class 4A State title and earned First Team Class 4A All-State honors. During the summer, Sayre was named Iowa Junior PGA Player of the Year after winning four events. Sayre has earned First Team All-State and All-CIML First Team honors every year in high school. As a freshman, she posted an 18-hole scoring average of 79.63 and in the classroom is an honor roll student.

The Wayne State College women’s golf team competed in five outings during the fall season and will be finalizing a handful more of spring competitions for 2022. WSC won the Nebraska Invite while posting a pair of third place finishes with their season-low team score of 624 coming during the Mustang Invite September 25 – 26 in Marshall, Minnesota.
