Vanderbilt is a very prestigious university. The golf program is just perfect - it has great people and I can’t wait to be a part of it.

Comments from Head Coach Martha Freitag:
On Chris Brady:
Chris is one of the top golfers in the country in the Class of 2003. We are thrilled she is coming to Vanderbilt, not only because she is such a great player, but also because of her family ties. It will be great to have her mom and family back involved with Vanderbilt. She is a dynamite player who will only get better in college - she is just a great athlete.

On Kristen Svicarovich:
Kristen is like a tiger out there. She too is one of the top golfers in the Class of 2003. She is a fighter and has a very sound golf swing. She is another player that is a great fit for Vanderbilt.

Overall:
They are such a neat pair - they are both what I’m looking for - they know how to compete and they know how to win. We plan on continuing to build the tradition that we have started here at Vanderbilt. Anytime you can add people like this to your program, you just get better.
