Two local rivals will join forces on the women’s golf team at Texas.

On Wednesday, Texas announced the signings of Westlake’s Bentley Cotton and Lake Travis’ Macy Fox. Ashley Park, a golfer from Sage Hill High in Irving, Calif., has also signed with the Longhorns.

Fox and Cotton are currently ranked 35th and 44th in the AJGA Rolex rankings. Cotton has helped lead Westlake to the last two Class 6A championships and she placed 17th at the 2019 USGA Women’s Amateur. Fox has earned four AJGA victories in her young career. She was a member of a 2017 Class 6A title team at Lake Travis that also included current UT phenom Kaitlyn Papp.


Park is the No. 83 golfer in the AJGA Rolex rankings. She tied for first at the 2019 SCGA Junior Amateur Championship.
