Lauren verbally committed to play for the University of Virginia in May.  She plans to red shirt her first year and earn a master’s degree in her five years there.  Her mom Cathy Freyvogel said Lauren chose UVA over other full scholarship offers, due to the academics and the quality of the golf program. 

"She loves the coaches," said Mrs. Freyvogel. "Lauren is looking forward to playing in the ACC.  UVA won back-to-back ACC championships in 2015 and 2016."
