NAU’s Kim Named Black Clover Golfer of the Week

OGDEN, Utah - Northern Arizona’s Alexa Kim has been selected as the Black Clover Big Sky Conference golfer of the week after placing second at the Red Rocks Invitational.

Kim led Northern Arizona to a 10-shot victory in the 18-team tournament. Northern Arizona shot rounds of 304, 309 for a 612, 10 strokes better than second-place Western Michigan.

The tournament was played on Feb. 25-26 at the Oakcreek Country Club in Sedona, Ariz.

This is the Kim’s third golfer of the week honor this season.
