Kim Voted Second Team All-Northeast Conference
Central Connecticut senior women's golfer Deborah Kim collected her second career All-Northeast Conference selection, as announced by the league office this afternoon. Kim, who tied for 10th at the NEC Women's Golf Championships this season, was a second team honoree. She shot 80, 81 and a season-low 77 over the three-day conference tournament on the Hershey Links in Hershey, PA.
Kim appeared in all nine CCSU events in 2008-09. She posted an 82.5 stroke average over 18 rounds. The Shelburne, Ontario native had two top-10 finishes, not including a medalist effort at her career-ending dual match versus St. Francis (NY).
In past seasons, the top-10 finishers at the league championship earned all-conference status. Coaches voted for NEC Golfer of the Year, NEC Rookie of the Year and the All-NEC teams this season. Kim, who transferred from Chicago State following her freshman season, was an all-conference honoree as a sophomore. She finished seventh at the 2007 Northeast Conference Women's Golf Championships.
Long Island senior Natalie Desjardins was tabbed the NEC Golfer of the Year. Sacred Heart freshman Carly Bergin earned NEC Rookie of the Year honors.
