If you know about the Ducks Women’s Golf Team, I am sure you know that our team likes to take lots of pictures. You may also know about our famous (and slightly embarrassing) selfie-pod, which was introduced to us by the even MORE famous, Marcella Pranovia! In fact, she is so famous that she has more Twitter followers than some small countries! :)
Marcella is originally from Indonesia, but finished high school in Orange County, CA. Marcella has been a tremendous addition both personally and athletically to the Duck family. An upcoming sophomore who can bomb her driver 270 yards off the tee, she also likes to model in the mirror, and even professionally. In fact, she even won a modeling competition in Indonesia as a teenager! She is one of our most trendy Ducks, as she adds a certain sense of #swag and contributes with her fashion advice to the team.
“Finally reunited with Brenna & Coco!!!!! I WAS SO EXCITED I HAVENT SEEN THEM IN A MONTH” – Marcella
In addition, she also provides endless “lost in translation” moments that keep us entertained for days on end. :) Another outside golf secret about Marcella is her ability to consume large amounts of rice. In fact, she orders rice almost every time she has the chance at a restaurant, and when there are two side options she will even get two sides of it!!! Marcella is also famous for her significant improvements in the weight room, and also earned the 2014 Sissy Lala Award, an award that goes to the “most girly-girl” player as designated by her team members.
The winner of the 2013 Junior Orange Bowl in Miami Florida, Marcella has provided the team with many solid rounds this year, and started her Oregon Women’s Golf career with a 75.95 stroke average. The future is bright for our Balinese princess and we look forward to being by her side as she works toward what’s in store for herself.
