K-State's Sunner wins Pepsi Little Peoples

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State sophomore-to-be Abbi Sunner won the Division 8 Girls (18-19) section Wednesday at the Pepsi Little Peoples Golf Championship at the Deer Run Golf Course in Hamilton, Ill. 

Sunner opened the competition with a 79 but roared back with a final-round 74 to take the title going away.

Maureen White, the 2006 Iowa 4A state champion, shot a two-round total of 158 and finished second.

A product of Ankeny, Iowa, Sunner competed in eight tournaments as a true freshman for the Wildcats, including six spring events. She recorded three top-20 finished during 2006-07, including a second-place at the Baja Classic, and finished the season with a 78.5 stroke average.

Sunner and the Kansas State women’s golf team open their 2007-08 season on Monday, Sept. 10, at the Chip-N-Club Invitational in Lincoln, Neb.
