"There's been a lot of choices I've had to make in picking which college," she said. "I hadn't ever really thought about Monmouth, but they reached out to me, I visited the school and I fell in love with it. I'm really excited to make new friends on the team and learning from another new coaching experience."

Carey Cappel, Girls Head Golf Coach, said, with four years of varsity experience, this is a very "well deserved" accomplishment for Bemis.

"She has been a huge asset to our team, not only on the course but off," Cappel said. "She's a great role model in the classroom. I don't know how she balances school, a job, music and being an outstanding athlete. I'm extremely proud, I'm going to miss her."
