St. Agnes Academy (Memphis) golfer Rachel Heck on Wednesday was named to the U.S. Junior Ryder Cup team.
Heck, a junior who has committed to Stanford, repeated as the All-USA Player of the Year and TSSAA Division II-AA state champion last year. She will be one of six American girls who will compete in the two-day match against their European counterparts Sept. 24-25 at Disneyland Paris.
Heck was the youngest participant at the 2017 U.S. Women’s Open; at 15 years old, she tied for 33rd place at 2-over par. In October, she was named Player of the Year by the American Junior Golf Association.
