KENILWORTH, N.J. – Following a tremendous run of play over the summer, and continuing with a successful fall at Harvard, sophomore Anina Ku of the women's golf team has been named the New Jersey State Golf Association (NJSGA) Women's Player of the Year.

Ku posted a pair of podium finishes for the Crimson this fall, including a third-place result at the Dartmouth Invitational and a second-place finish at the Yale Women's Fall Intercollegiate. The Basking Ridge, New Jersey native led the team with three rounds in the 60s this fall.

"Winning the Women's Amateur this summer and being named as the NJSGA Player of the Year means so much to me. The victory came after years of strong competition and constant reflection, trying to improve," told Ku to the NJSGA. "The NJSGA maintains such high quality competition in the state. As a collegiate player, I am so grateful that the NJSGA brings together the best for each event they host."

Harvard women's golf continues its slate this spring, with its schedule still to be announced. Ku was an All-Ivy League second team honoree a year ago.
