Min has played in 34 tournaments and 97 rounds over the course of her collegiate career, earning West Coast Conference accolades every season. During the 2015-16 season, Min was the WCC Individual Champion after shooting a school record six-under 66 on the final day. Known for both her ambition and compassion, she encourages her teammates to go above and beyond. Her fellow Zags described her as, "one who leads by example. She is awesome at everything she does."
