Amy Bockerstette to make golf history once again at NJCAA national championships

Three years ago, Amy Bockerstette made history when she signed with Paradise Valley Community College to play college golf.

Now, she’s breaking new ground again, as Bockerstette will become the first athlete with Down syndrome to compete in a national collegiate athletic championship.

Bockerstette, 22, will be with her Paradise Valley teammates at the National Junior College Athletic Association national championships, which take place at the Plantation Bay Golf & Country Club in Ormond Beach, Florida, May 10-13.
