Kim steps it up for Fremd

Fremd's girls golf team kept its record perfect in the Mid-Suburban League on Wednesday.

And the Vikings did it with a school record-tying performance.

One week after senior Dorothy Feng shot a school-record 36 on the front nine at Palatine Hills Golf Club, classmate Jennifer Kim duplicated the par score on the same course Tuesday as the Vikings topped visiting Hoffman Estates 159-206.

Kim's 36 broke her former personal best of 37 which she recorded at the Mt. Prospect Golf Course as a junior.

"My putting was good," said Kim, who negotiated the 9 holes with only 15 putts, birdies on holes No. 5 and 6, and a sand save on No. 3. "I actually didn't even realize I was playing that well. I was just feeling confident and trying to do my best like I always do."

Hoffman Estates senior Hannah Brostoff was at her best, recording a career-low 41 to spark the Hawks to their season-low team score.

Fremd's team score of 159, which also counted scores from Feng (40), junior Kelly O'Sullivan (40), sophomore JaeHee Hurr (43) and sophomore Haezi Jung (43), was only 2 strokes shy of its school record of 157 set last week against St. Charles North.

That was the meet in which Feng shot her 36.

"The girls are playing real well," said Fremd coach Christine Vlaming, whose team (9-0, 6-0) is undefeated along with Prospect and Barrington in the MSL. "It's a great group to be around and we're excited to see what happens the rest of the season."

What happened on hole No. 1 ignited Brostoff's best round.

Putting from near the fringe of the green, Brostoff rolled in a 50-foot putt, that broke right and went up hill.

Brostoff, who plans to study architecture and will try to walk on to a college team, made 5 pars en route to her 41.

"She was hitting her irons well," said Hawks coach Tim Teegarden, whose team's best nine-hole card of the season was completed by Aashna Singer (53), Maeve Prusnick (55) and Haenah Kim (57). "She made a great putt No. 1."

Hawks sophomore Sakhee Sakhardande made a great shot a week ago today in a junior varsity meet at Walnut Greens in Schaumburg. Sakhardande hit a 9-iron for a hole-in-one on the par-3 No. 3 hole.
