(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Missouri Western golf coach Greg Dillon signed three athletes Wednesday including a former Savannah Savage.

Ryan Hand will golf for the Griffons next season, along with Jakob Rudosky from Cortez, Colorado, and Tiffanie Yabut from Omaha, Nebraska who will join the women's squad.

Hand qualified for the Missouri state high school tournament all four years at Savannah, including a top ten finish as a junior. After high school he moved on to play for Dodge City Community College. Hand shot a low round of 72 at the Jayhawk #4 Tournament in Salina, Kansas last season, and finished 24th in the NJCAA D-I Men's National Championship.

Missouri Western's first tournament of the spring will come March 10th at the Arkansas Tech David Falconer Memorial Classic in Russellville, Arkansas.
