Kim tied for 30th in women's golf

Advertiser Staff

Former Hilo resident Kimberly Kim leads a trio of Hawai'i golfers after yesterday's opening round of the NCAA Women's Golf Championship at Country Club of Landfall in Wilmington, N.C.

Kim, a University of Denver freshman, earned her way in as an individual. She has a share of 30th after shooting a 1-over-par 73 the first day. New Mexico senior Britney Choy is 49th after firing a 74, and UCLA sophomore Stephanie Kono is 72nd after a 76.

Kono's top-ranked UCLA team is tied for third. The Bruins shot even-par 288 and trail leader USC by six shots. New Mexico (303) is 22nd.

USC's Jennifer Song, Purdue's Maude-Aimee LeBlanc and Arizona State's Jennifer Johnson share the individual lead at 67. The tournament concludes Friday.



For the first time in five years, Rainbow Wahine basketball will conduct camps.

Coach Dana Takahara-Dias, her staff and current and former players will lead two three-day sessions June 11 to 13. Former University of Hawai'i coach Vince Goo and high school and club coaches will also be involved.
