Radford University head women’s golf coach Jeff Beeler announced the addition of two in-state standouts Monday afternoon.
Kaitlyn Mosdell and Caleigh Street will join the program for the 2021-22 season. Mosdell and Street will each have four years of eligibility remaining.
Mosdell, a Roanoke native, is a three-time qualifier for the Virginia High School League Girls State Championship (2017-19). She competed at Lord Botetourt High School. She was a two-time All-Blue Ridge District Team selection (2018, 2019) and also won the Blue Ridge District Tournament.
On the junior side, Mosdell was a two-time member of the Roanoke Valley Golf Hall of Fame (2018, 2019) and finished second at the Roanoke County City Tournament, posting rounds of 77 and 71. Mosdell was also ranked as the sixth-best prospect in the 2021 class.
“I’m excited to have Kaitlyn join our program,” Beeler said. “She has tremendous upside and is a local talent that should have an immediate impact on our program.”
Street, a Jewell Ridge, Va., native, is a three-time qualifier for the VHSL Girls State Championship (2017-19). She competed at Richlands High School. She was the first female from Richlands to ever qualify for the VHSL State Championship. She shot a 69 to win the VHSL Region 2D Championship in 2019. Street was also the 2019 VHSL Southwest District and Region 2D Player of the Year.
Street had a decorated junior career as well, winning both the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour’s Raleigh Summer Junior Tournament and the HJGT Knoxville Fall Junior Open, shooting 70-76 to win the latter event. She also finished as the runner-up in the HJGT Pinehurst Fall Junior Open.
“Like a lot of recruits for 2021, I’ve never met Caleigh, but after speaking with her and getting to know her I know she’s going to fit in perfectly with our team,” Beeler said. “She’s had a great junior golf career and we’re excited for her to join us in the fall.”
Mosdell and Street will join a Highlanders team that returns four of its five starters from the 2019-20 team that set the school record for lowest 54-hole team score.
