University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa women’s golfers Hyeonji Kang and Mayumi Umezu received 2023 Big West All-Conference awards. Kang was selected to the conference first team and Umezu was selected to the second team.

She competed in all nine tournaments with three top 10 finishes, including runner-up at the Cowgirl Classic, which was held April 3–4 in Maricopa, Arizona. Last season, Kang earned second-team all-conference honors.

Umezu, a sophomore from Waimea, Hawaiʻi, finished second on the team with a 74.3 average. Last week, she was named to the Big West all-tournament team after tying for fourth at the conference championship. Umezu also posted the season’s best single round (67) and 54-hole total (212) at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational, held October 24–26, 2022.

UH concluded the 2022–23 season last week at the Big West Championship, where it finished in seventh place.
