USCB's Nakano earns NAIA honorable mention

USC Beaufort sophomore Kelli Nakano was given honorable mention on the NAIA Women's Golf All-America team, which was announced Monday.

Nakano was one of 15 players given honorable mention, and another 15 were named to the first team, including three other players from the Sun Conference -- Embry-Riddle's Fabys Barreto-Guzman and Pia Jenko and SCAD Savannah's Nikki Stewart.

Nakano won the individual title at the Sun Conference Championship last month and tied for USCB's best finish at the NAIA National Championship last week, tying for 61st.
