Uriell, Kim Earn All-America Honors
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Senior Alana Uriell and junior Dylan Kim added their names to the Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-America teams, the organization announced today.
Uriell and Kim earned second-team honors joining teammate Maria Fassi who was a first-team selection on Tuesday. Arkansas has had eight Razorbacks earn 17 WGCA All-America honors in its program history. The selection is the first for Uriell and Kim was a second-team honoree at Baylor before transferring to Arkansas.
Uriell is a Carlsbad, California, native who graduated from Arkansas in May. She finished the year third on the team with a 71.68 stroke average. She was a First-Team All-Southeastern Conference selection and was the only Razorback to card a round in the 60’s at the NCAA Championship last week.
This season, Uriell had three top-3 finishes and played the four-event fall 28-under par. Uriell was on the ANNIKA Award Watch List for player of the year honors and was selected as a member of the inaugural Palmer Cup team for women.
Kim is also a First-Team All-SEC, ANNIKA Award Watch List and Palmer Cup team selection. The Plano, Texas, native is second on the team with a 71.56 stroke average. She counted 21 rounds of par or better, finished the year with seven top-10 showings and led Arkansas at the NCAA Championship finishing tied for 21st overall.
The duo is part of a record-setting team that won the program’s first SEC and NCAA Regional titles. Arkansas had a program-record seven team victories and set several team and individual records this year.
