INDIANAPOLIS (GoThunderWolves.com – Apr. 28, 2014) — Colorado State University-Pueblo sophomore Leina Kim (Saipan, CNMI) has been selected as an individual to compete in the NCAA Division II Women's Golf West Super Regional Tournament, which will be contested May 5-7 at Walnut Creek Country Club in Mansfield, Texas.
Kim was also selected for the tournament as a freshman in 2013 and finished in a tie for third to qualify for the NCAA Division II National Championships, where she took 28th place.
Now a 2-time Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Player of the Year, Kim will be the only player from the RMAC at the 3-day, 54-hole tournament that will be hosted by Dallas Baptist University. Only nine teams and four individuals from the mammoth-sized region were selected.
Because women's golf does not have an automatic qualification process, the ThunderWolves were not selected as team despite their RMAC Championship.
Again in 2014, three teams and the top three individuals not on those teams will advance to the May 14-17 national tournament in Conover, North Carolina.
Kim won three individual tournament crowns this season and has posted a 75.1 stroke average and a 95.2 head-to-head winning percentage.
She was named to the All-RMAC Tournament team for the second straight year after finishing in a tie for third at the RMAC Championships. She was named as the RMAC Golfer of the Week an impressive five times this season and finished amongst the top 10 at eight of CSU-Pueblo's nine tournaments, racking up six top-5 finishes.
