Castiello, Shelton sign with NSU


— Northeastern State women’s golf coach Scott Varner has received national letters of intent from two incoming freshman, he announced today.

The two additions to the program are Sofia Castiello (Guadalajara, Mexico) and Gabbi Shelton (Stillwater).

Castiello is also taught by Rafael Alarcon, who is a high school friend of Varner’s and a two-time All-American at Oklahoma State.

Castiello attended the IMG David Leadbetter Golf Academy in Florida. Her low tournament rounds are 67-70, and they both came this past fall. She consistently shoots in the mid- to low-70’s and is currently ranked No. 3 on the Mexican Junior Golf Association Tour.

Shelton has played on the No. 1 bag at Stillwater High School and has shown quality potential this past year.

She works out of Stillwater Country Club, which is the club Varner came through as a state champion in 1980.
