This season, the San José State women’s golf program is participating in the Fold of Honor Military Tribute Program. The Spartans will carry a golf bag in honor of 2nd Lt Travis A. Morgado who was from San Jose. His life was cut short during active duty in Zharay, Afghanistan, from injuries sustained when insurgents attacked his patrol with an improvised explosive device (May 23, 2012). He also has connections to San José State as his maternal grandparents and an aunt are Spartan alumni.

Kajsa Arwefjäll has the honor of carrying this special bag in honor of 2nd Lt. Travis Morgado.
