Idallas Quinones becomes first Palmetto girls golfer to sign with college program

May 3, 2013 

Idallas Quinones made history on Thursday when she signed with Southeastern University (NAIA) in Lakeland. The four-year starter on Palmetto High's girls golf team became the first Tigers female golfer to sign a letter of intent to play college golf. Quinones was also the club's captain and No. 1 golfer this past season. "Coaching Idallas for the past four years has been a pleasure," Palmetto coach Jenn Little said. "She joined our team without any prior experience, and it has been amazing to witness her improvement. She has put in countless hours of practice, and it is great to see all of her hard work and determination pay off. We are all very proud of her here at PHS."
