Q&A With Karinn Dickinson
April 16, 2008
Freshman Karinn Dickinson became the first Husky women's golfer to win a tournament title since 2006 when she captured medalist honors at Stanford's Peg Barnard Collegiate last weekend. Dickinson, who carded two-straight career-low rounds of 1-under 71, helped the squad to a second-place team finish - UW's best showing of the season. Up next will be the Pac-10 Championships hosted by USC in Palos Verdes, Calif. Dickinson took some time to talk to GoHuskies.com correspondent Emily Florence about her winning performance, a bit about life in Norway and the team's goals for the conference tournament.
