University of Hawai’i at Hilo senior Kristen Sawada was named to the All-PacWest Women’s Golf Third Team this week, putting a bow on her collegiate golf career.

Sawada, from Mililani, Oahu, recorded four top-ten finishes this season, including a tie for ninth place at the PacWest Conference Women’s Golf Championship, which earned her a spot on the All-Tournament Team. Her best finish, however, was in the season opening St. Martin’s Invitational, where she finished in a tie for fourth place.

California Baptist’s Marvi Monsalve and Erica Wang were named the PacWest Conference’s Golfer of the Year and Freshman of the Year, respectively, based on voting by the league’s coaches. Elaine Harris of Academy of Art won the Coach of the Year award.
