(Editor’s note: Montana Tech media release)

BUTTE – Montana Tech head golf coach Lee LaBreche announced the commitment of four new golfers for the Orediggers.

Houtson Green and Sean Ramsbacher will join the men’s team this fall. Both had successful prep careers at Class AA high schools in Montana.

“Although they will be freshmen next year on a Digger men’s team that will be very competitive, I think both of them have the potential to push for varsity playing time,” said LaBreche.

Green, a local standout, graduates from Butte High this spring. Green had a very successful junior career competing on the Southwest Montana Junior Golf Tour. He was first-team all-state, finishing fourth at the state tournament last fall.

Green plans on pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Ramsbacher played prep at Missoula Sentinel High School. The Spartans finished fourth in the team standings last fall and third in 2015. A two-time all-state finisher, Ramsbacher was the state runner-up last year and finished fifth as a junior. Ramsbacher had a storied junior career including a low score of 66 at a junior tournament.

Ramsbacher plans on pursuing a degree in Engineering.

Joining the women’s team are Idaho’s Kelsey Parker and Angela King from Billings Skyview.

“The signing of these two young women should bolster our women’s team starting this fall,” said LaBreche. “The skills they bring to the program will create instant competition within our program. I’m very optimistic about the future of the team and competitiveness in the Frontier Conference.”

Parker, from Boise, was a four-year letter-winner for Centennial High School and will compete in the Idaho State Tournament this spring. She also competed in the Idaho Golf Association Junior Golf program.

Parker is a member of the National Honor Society and will graduate with honors. She plans on pursuing a degree in Engineering.

King finished her prep career at Billings Skyview last fall. After low team placing her sophomore and junior years, King led Skyview to a fourth-place finish as a senior at the state tournament.

King plans on pursuing a degree in Nursing.

The four new additions brings the 2017 recruiting class to five. Tanna Campbell from Big Timber committed earlier this year.
