Katherine Cook Commits to Florida State University
Katherine Cook already knows where she wants to attend college and compete collegiately at the highest level of Division I Golf. The Brookwood School Junior recently accepted a scholarship offer and committed to Florida State University, where she plans to sign with the Seminoles program next year in November 2021.
"I just really narrowed it down over time and I've always wanted to compete at a high level. This is where I decided I would be able to best succeed," Cook said.
Cook has seemingly grown up on a golf course competing in tournaments throughout the country. This summer, she won the MAADA 9th Annual Atlanta Junior Classic. An impressive -6 in the event’s 1st Round helped propel her to the win.
As a Freshman she helped Brookwood finish 3rd as a team in the State Tournament. Her Sophomore school season was cut short, with the Warriors only able to compete in a few tournaments before the season was shut down during the pandemic.
Cook knows it's a long wait until Signing Day next fall, but knew the Seminoles were the team she wanted to be on in the future. She says, "I love the coaches. It's a great program and facility. We're going to have a great team when I'm there."
The Seminoles finished 2nd in the ACC in 2019 and advanced to the NCAA Champions Finals that year. Their 2020 season was cut short due to the pandemic.
Verbal commitments are non-binding. Cook can sign her National Letter of Intent in November of next year as a high school Senior.
Located in Thomasville, GA, Brookwood School is a private school for grades JK-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
