The last couple of weeks have been rather eventful for local high school golfer Gina Kim.
The Chapel Hill Tiger was named to the American Junior Golf Association Rolex Junior All-America girl’s first team last Thursday, adding to a long list of accolades she has accumulated during her high school career.
Kim was one of two North Carolinians on the girl’s first team, joined by Emilia Migliaccio, of Cary.
Kim followed up that honor by defending her 3A state championship on Monday and Tuesday.
Kim not only won the 3A state title once again, she did so in dominating fashion. Kim followed up a first-round 69 by firing a 72 in the second round, finishing at three-under-par and cruising to a nine-shot victory.
