Bio Bits

Kim started as an outside hitter on the women’s volleyball team at Loyola Marymount where she was inducted into the "Athletic Hall of Fame."  While there, her teams won three straight West Coast Conference titles and reached the Sweet Sixteen in 1996, finishing ninth in the nation in the final poll.  Kim was the 1998 West Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year.  In 1996 she was the WCC Player of the Year and a Third Team All American.  LMU named her the Female Athlete of the Year in 1996 through 1997.  She graduated with a degree in Communications in 1997.

Kim's legacy lives on with an annual 4-woman volleyball tournament played in Hermosa Beach that began in 2007.  Proceeds from the tournament are used to award scholarships to deserving graduates in her name.
