Chatham’s Tess Scaman has made an NCAA commitment to play college golf next season for Post University.

Scaman, a Chatham-Kent Secondary School student, competed this season both at the high school level, and also on the Jamieson Junior Golf Tour. Scaman finished in the Top 10 in each of her 13 tournaments this summer. For her, the choice of Post University came for a variety of reasons.

“A couple reasons why I chose Post are because of the atmosphere I saw when i visited, how small the school is – more 1 on 1 learning, similar to high school class sizes, not overwhelmingly large – I really connected with the coach Steve Sokol and teammates that I met,” explained Scaman. “I felt like it would be the right fit for me and will provide me with lots of new and exciting experiences for the next 4 years.”

An accomplished volleyball and badminton player as well, Scaman will begin competing with the NCAA Division II school next season, and will also study Business Administration at Post University. She has competed for the Chatham-Kent Secondary School Golden Hawks, and Chatham Ballhawks outside of school.

“I am equally extremely excited and nervous knowing the level I’ll be playing at but I’m going in with a very open mind as to what I can achieve and I think I will learn a lot from being able to play a post-secondary sport.”

Post University is located in Waterbury, Connecticut.
