Valparaiso High School golfer Harley Dubsky signed a national letter of intent to continue her academic and athletic careers at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas Wednesday at the High School.
Dubsky was joined by her parents, Doug and Sunni Dubski, golf teammates, school officials, friends and VHS Head Golf Coach Bill Miller as she made her commitment to UNLV official.
“We are all very proud of everything she accomplished and how she has represented herself the last four years,” Miller said. “She is certainly deserving of this great accomplishment in signing to play golf and study at a premier Division I university.”
She will play for Head Coach Amy Bush at UNLV.
Dubsky’s track record at VHS speaks for itself. She is a two-time regional and sectional champion and won the state title as an individual this year.
She said she chose UNLV over larger D-1 schools such as the universities of Arizona, Georgia and Arkansas because of the “amazing coaches” at UNLV and the fact they had a top-tier culinary program, which will be her major while competing for the Runnin’ Rebels.
“I wanted to be on a team that is always getting better and to help them build and get to the next level,” she said. “I have great confidence in the coaches at UNLV and know I can trust them.”
Among Dubsky’s collegiate goals are to help UNLV stay atop the Mountain West Conference and help the team earn a spot in the NCAA regionals.
And while she definitely wants to qualify for the National Championships as an individual, Dubsky says a team victory “would be much sweeter.”
Standing side-by-side with many of her high school teammates Wednesday, Dubsky said her time at Valparaiso High School provided her her first opportunity to be part of a team experience.
“I am so grateful to all of these girls,” she said. “They have been incredible, teaching me a lot about golf and about life.”
