LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech women's golf coach JoJo Robertson announced Tuesday the signing of three international players to national letters of intent to join the program for the 2013-14 season.

Robertson, now in her fourth year at Tech, went overseas for the largest signing class of her tenure as Louise Gateau Chovelon (Saint Satur, France), Lauren Mason (Queensland, Australia) and Stephanie Bertelsen (Vejsle, Denmark) all inked with the Lady Raiders.

"We are so proud to have Louise, Lauren and Stephanie join our team," Robertson said. "All three of them bring great experience and a competitive spirit that will make an impact on our team. We are very fortunate to have them join our program."

A member of the 2012 European Girls Team Championship squad, Chovelon will arrive at Tech after playing in several of the top amateur tournaments in her native France. During her amateur career, she has participated in the Ladies Amateur British Open, the Portuguese International Ladies Amateur and the Spanish Ladies Amateur. She also tied for fifth at the Championship of France this past year as well.

She is one of two high school signees for Tech, joining Mason, who is currently No. 3 in the 2012 Australian Junior Girls rankings. Like Chovelon, Mason has also participated in several of Australia's top tournaments with wins at the Katherine Hull Classic and the Sunshine Coast Ladies Amateur. She is also a member of the winning Queensland team that won the Australian Girls Interstate Matches.

Bertelsen, meanwhile, arrives following a two-year stint at Western Texas College in nearby Snyder where she is currently the second-ranked golfer at the NJCAA level according to Golfstat. She finished third at the NJCAA National Championships as a freshman to help lead the Westerners to a third-place finish as a team. Prior to signing with WTC, Bertelsen won the 2011 Danish International Youths Championship and was one of the top-ranked amateur players in the country.

The three players will look to replace Tech's two graduating seniors, reigning All-Americans Kim Kaufman and Gabby Dominguez who will both conclude their eligibility this spring.
