Moon was one of just three players on any of the NGCA's teams not from a traditional Division I Power conference, and the only player named from a school in the Northeast.

Sophomore Alex Lipa and freshman Sun Park were co-recipients for their efforts in 2010-2011.
2010-2011 was a year to remember for the Yale women's golf team, and one that came to a close Saturday with the completion of play at the NCAA's East Regional at the LPGA International in Daytona Beach, Fla.

After the second round at the NCAA East Regional, the Bulldogs are tied for 21st with Texas Tech, having posted a second-day combined 609 Friday.

Yale's stellar freshman Seo Hee Moon was the Ivy League coaches' unanimous pick for 2011 Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year.

The Yale women's golf team is two-for-two in wins so far this season, and though the type of wins have been a little different (the first coming in a two-team matchup with Longwood University, the second over a 22-team field at the C&F Bank Invitational), the story has been much the same. Freshman Seo Hee Moon has absolutely dominated, establishing herself as one of the best freshmen golfers in the nation while winning the individual sides of both tournaments so far this spring, and five of six in the fall.
Sophomore Joy Kim's hole-in-one on the par-3 twelfth hole at Ford's County C.C. propelled the Yale women's golf team to a victory over the 22-team field at this weekend's C&F Bank Invitational.

The women's golf team ended its 2010 fall season with a bang, Monday, taking first overall at the Sacred Heart Invitational with nine players finishing in the individual top 25. Freshman See Heo Moon took the individual title with rounds of 75 and 73 (+4 overall), just ahead of senior Harriet Owers-Bradley (80, 72, +8), sophomore Alex Lipa (79, 74, +9), and classmate Sun Park (75. 80, +11).
See Heo Moon has certainly burst onto the scene for the Bulldogs this fall, but she may have outdone herself Sunday. Moon took the Harvard Invitational individual title in emphatic fashion , setting a career low with a Sunday round of 66 that not only featured a remarkable hole-in-one, but also established a women's course record - all of which led Yale to a comeback victory over archrival Harvard...on the Crimson's home turf.
The womens golf team will travel to Boston this weekend to tee off at the Harvard Invitational, held at the International Club in Boston, Mass.

After the first day at the Harvard Invitational, See Heo Moon and the Yale women's golf team find themselves in a familiar position: the top of the leaderboard. Moon's opening round 74 has her leading all players, while she and her teammates trail only the host Crimson for the team lead - a that deficit is a very surmountable three strokes heading into Sunday's round.
