Kim, a sophomore from Chandler, Ariz., led USC with five rounds in the 60’s last month and became the first Trojan since Dewi Claire Schreefel in the Fall of 2007 to go under 70 in all three rounds of an event. She won the season-opening Fall Preview at 6-under 204 (69-69-66) with her three round total tying the second lowest ever in USC history.
