The Washington men’s golf team signed four players to letters of intent Wednesday, including Frank Garber, who has won two class 3A state titles at Juanita High School in Kirkland, and Spencer Weiss, the Class 4A state champion this past spring for Eastlake of Sammamish.
Also signing to play for UW were Greg Gildea of Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma and Jordan Lu of Vancouver, B.C.
“Signing four guys is a big class, but we just liked all these guys so much that it made sense for us,” said Washington coach Matt Thurmond. “There is great balance here in their golf abilities, personalities and leadership styles. It’s also the first time in several years that we’ve signed three Washington guys in one class.”
