Kelly Storti, of Deerfield, has been selected as an athletic communications graduate assistant for the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater during the 2020-21 year. Storti, a fifth-year senior on the Warhawk golf team, will assist with all athletic communications operations, including website and social media content, media relations and statistics and results for UW-Whitewater’s 22 varsity sport programs.

Storti most recently worked for Paragon Marketing/GMP Management, Inc. in Chicago, assisting with the on-site marketing and promotional initiatives between GMP Management, Inc. and the Gatorade® Youth Program, which is managed by Paragon Marketing. In the summer of 2018, she worked as a tournament coordinator for the Illinois Junior Golf Association, assisting with all tournament operations.

Storti helped the UW-Whitewater golf team claim three Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championships and three straight NCAA Championship bids. She was a 2019 first team All-WIAC honoree and a 2019-20 UW-Whitewater Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete. Storti graduated last spring with her bachelor’s in communication and will pursue a master’s in communication.

Last month, Storti captures the women’s division championship title at the Milton City Golf Tournament at Oak Ridge Golf Course, Milton, Wisconsin on Aug. 2. Storti battled with UW-Whitewater golf teammate CheyAnn Knudsen for the championship title. Both shot 74s in round one. Storti collected 73 strokes on Sunday to secure the win with a 147 overall.
