Flood, Kim Named Co-Student-Athletes of the Week
Oct. 17, 2011
Kim shot the lowest 54-hole total in UW history by firing a 13-under 200 at Stanford Golf Course to win her first college tournament. The team combined to shoot 847 (-5) bettering their previous record of 850, also set at the Stanford Intercollegiate in 2003. For Kim, the victory came in just her third college tournament. Kim's score of 13-under equaled Anya Alvarez's 54-hole total versus par in 2008 at the Las Vegas Invitational, but her gross score was three shots better than Alvarez's 203. She fired 5-under 66 during the final round to win by two strokes over UCLA's Stephanie Kono. The 66 equaled the second lowest round ever by a Husky in the final round.
Flood (Des Moines, Iowa) made her season debut for the Huskies on Friday at the Adidas Wisconsin Invitational. The 24th-ranked Huskies were not considered frontrunners for the title going in, as the field was perhaps the largest and deepest regular season meet in history, with 18 ranked teams and seven Top-10 squads. But Washington came through with the victory, led by Flood's seventh-place finish. As a sophomore, Flood was the youngest runner in the Top-10, as five of the top-six were seniors. The 2010 Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year covered the 6,000-meter course in 20-minutes, 14-seconds.
