First-year Kendra Jones-Munk tops the leaderboard for the first time

Steadily improving her play during every event in the BCRS, Vernon's own Kendra Jones-Munk, hit the top of the leaderboard in just her fifth outing for the Heat women's golf team. In Surrey at the Northview Golf and Country Club Jones-Munk shot a 1-over (73) to outpace the second-place golfers by a pair of strokes. The Heat women finished second (234, +18) in the fifth event of the BCSR.

On Thursday, in event six, the UBCO women's squad finished third (238, +22) but landed just two shots off the pace of the leading schools UFV and UBC. Those two squads tied for first shooting (236, +20). Samantha Copeland led the way for UBCO with a 5-over (77) in Richmond, BC at the Mayfair Lake Golf and Country Club that day.

The Heat have now completed six of the eight events in the fall portion of the BCSR and will complete the final two stages on Wednesday (Oct. 28) and Thursday (Oct. 29) at the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club and the Morgan Creek Golf Cub respectively.
