Hopkinton High senior Kim Donovan will officially sign a letter of intent tomorrow morning to attend Duke University on a golf scholarship next year.
Donovan, a two-time Most Valuable Player in the Tri-Valley League and a key performer on the Hillers' back-to-back Division 2 state championship teams as a freshman and sophomore, had verbally committed to the Blue Devil program this past summer.
"This just justifies the time and effort she has put into the game since she was 7 and 8 years old," said Hopkinton golf coach Dick Bliss. "She has such a passion for the game, and she sacrificed a lot to play golf. She had talent, but she made herself better every day. And I see nothing but great things ahead for her at Duke."
