Hannah Jun Returns To Competition

May 5, 2006

Hannah Jun has rejoined the UCLA women's golf team and will compete in next week's (May 11 - 13) NCAA West Regional in Auburn, WA.

The Bruins, who won their third straight Pac-10 title last week, are seeded No. 1 in the West Regional.

Jun, a junior, has not competed with the team since suffering injuries as a passenger in an automobile accident on December 10. She returned to practice with her teammates several weeks ago and has been cleared by personal and UCLA doctors for competition.

"We are really excited to have Hannah back in competitive condition," said head coach Carrie Forsyth. "We are grateful that she will have the opportunity to play in the post-season for us. It is a huge emotional boost to our team, and something which I believe will add to the momentum we have been building up over the past two months as we prepare for NCAAs.

"Hannah has not competed since last November," Forsyth continued, "so there is going to be an adjustment, but she is a great golfer, and time does not take that away. We are looking forward to competing for the West Regional title and moving on to the NCAA championships as the No. 1 seed."

In the Fall, Jun was ranked among the nation's Top 10 players after winning the UNLV Collegiate with a 54-hole score of 206 (-10).

Last year as a sophomore, she tied for 16th at the NCAA championships, helping UCLA to a second-place team finish. She also earned All-Pac-10 honorable mention honors.

As a freshman, she won the 2004 NCAA West Regional title and earned second-team All-America honors. She was also named second-team All-Pac-10 and Pac-10 Newcomer of the Year. The Bruins won the 2004 NCAA team title.
