July 7, 2006

Senior Hannah Jun qualified to play in the 106th U.S. Women's Amateur Championship Aug. 7-13 at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in North Plains, Ore.

Jun posted a score of 74 (+2) and placed second in sectional qualifying at Alta Mesa Country Club in Phoenix, Ariz. on July 6. She will be participating in her second U.S. Women's Amateur Championship after advancing to the first round last summer.

Earlier this summer, Jun earned co-medalist honors at the U.S. Women's Amateur Publinks Championship and advanced to the second round of match play.

Jun, 20, joins sophomores Tiffany Joh and Jane Park as the UCLA entrants thus far in the country's national championship for female amateur golfers. Joh received an exemption because of her victory at the Publinks championship last week, and Park's victory at the 2004 Amateur afforded her an exemption.
