Sophie Hill removed some weight from her shoulders on Wednesday.
Hill became the first member of the Shattuck-St. Mary’s Center of Excellence Golf Program to sign a National Letter of Intent during the early signing period, which she did in the Sabres’ practice facility Wednesday afternoon in front of about a dozen people.
Hill, who is from Medford, signed to join the Drake University women’s golf team next season. Although she’s the first Sabres golfer to ever sign during the early signing period, she was the fourth — and second girl — to sign on to play in college. Three of the four have signed with Division I teams.
“It’s a huge relief,” said Hill, who golfed for Owatonna High School before coming to SSM. “… I’m really thankful I have it figured out.”
Division I Drake, which is located in Des Moines, Iowa, competes in the Missouri Valley Conference. Hill first visited in June and made her official visit in September. She gave the school, which was the only one she visited, a verbal commitment shortly after. During her official visit, Hill sat in on a practice and stayed overnight. She liked the small size of the school — about 5,000 students — and got along well with the head coach, Leanne Smith.
“Basically I went to Drake and fell in love with it,” said Hill, who added that the school made her feel like she was at home. “I didn’t feel the need to look anywhere else.”
Earlier this season, Hill won her first MAJGT title, when she beat the second-place finisher by eight strokes during a two-day tournament at The Legacy Golf Course in Faribault.
“She’s very dedicated and goal-orientated,” said SSM’s Director of Golf Mike Higdon, “and this has always been a goal of hers, to play Division I.”
Hill, who is planning to peruse a degree in marketing or law, is the only girl of the three seniors on the SSM golf team this season. The other two members have not decided on a college yet.
“I think this is a huge relief for her,” Higdon said. “… It allows her to really concentrate on her game, and I think she will play really well the rest of the year.”

Faribault, MN - After an entire month of planning and preparations, the first ever weCreate Haunted House will make its debut on Thursday evening. In the final week of work, Seventy students spent over 100 hours designing every inch of the weCreate Center.
