Link Hills hosts the 2011
and 2012 NAIA Women’s
BY WAYNE PHILLIPSSPORTS EDITOROh, Canada!The golf team from University of British Columbia, and an individual player from another Canadian school, University of Victoria, are the champions of the annual NAIA Women's Golf National Championships, which concluded Friday at Link Hills Country Club.Hosting the tournament for two straight years has given the host families recruited by the Greene County Partnership's Sports Council a chance to meet some ladies and their coaches and parents from other parts of the country, and they are friendships that will last forever, tournament co-chair Tammy Kinser said. "We want to thank all the volunteers, our sponsors and host families, everybody who had a hand in putting on this national tournament for the past two years," she said. "Just know it could not have happened without the wonderful support we've received from Greene County. It's been a terrific boost to our economy, too."The Sports Council has applied to host the tournament for an unprecedented third consecutive year. The NAIA normally moves the tourney every two years, Kinser said. The location for next year's tournament will be announced soon.
