Wiley presented Kim Moore Spirit Award
– University of Southern Indiana freshman Tara Wiley
(Oxford, Indiana) was named the recipient of the NCAA Division II East Regional "Kim Moore Spirit Award." The recipient is selected by a vote of the region coaches.
The national winner of the "Kim Moore Spirit Award" winner will be announced tonight at the NCAA Division II Women's Golf National Championships Banquet.
This spirit award is dedicated to Kim Moore, who played golf for the University of Indianapolis (1999-2003). Moore was an inspiration to all as she persevered through many physical challenges while playing collegiate golf. Her positive outlook and dedication toward the game was only out done by her sense of humor and passion for the game.
Wiley has persevered after becoming legally blind in her left eye in a fishing accident. She was second on USI's women's golf team with an 84.1 strokes per round average (spr) and placed 24th at the East Regional.
