May 10, 2011

Junior Stephanie Kono (Honolulu, HI/Punahou School) of the UCLA women's golf team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for May 2-8.

Kono took home co-medalist honors at the NCAA Central Regional and helped lead the Bruins to their sixth regional title under Coach Carrie Forsyth.

Overall, she overcame a six-shot deficit on the final day to take home her first tournament victory of the year. Kono now heads into the NCAA Championship with a team-leading four top-5 finishes, 6 top-10 finishes and 14 rounds under par on the year.
