"I am so excited to have the opportunity to take my golf to the next level and to play for Coach Scheinost at GW," said Porcelli. "It's been a dream of mine to play Division I college golf and now it's come true. I couldn't have done this without the support of family, my teammates at Taft, and my coaches."
