Women's Golf 06/01/2005

June 1, 2005 By BRUCE BERLET Hartford Courant Staff Writer WEST HARTFORD -- Allen Miller, a member of the PGA Tour for 15 years in the 1970s and '80s, called Liz Janangelo over to his cart during a 20-minute wait on the 18th tee in the rain-delayed first round of the Connecticut Women's Open Tuesday. Miller, whose wife, Cindy, was paired with the two-time defending champion, wanted to help Janangelo with her future. "She said something on 17 about being intimidated when she played in a LPGA event, pushing a little hard at another level," he said. "Having played out there as long as I did, it's really no different, but you're in awe because you're seeing people who are already living at the dream level. "It's part of growing up on the tour, but as far as golf game-wise, she's as good as anyone out there. If she just plays her game, she could win right now." Miller didn't get an argument from his wife, who holed a 30-foot chip for eagle 3 at No. 2 in a 1-under-par 72 that

June 1, 2005 DURHAM, N.C. -- College golf star Anna Grzebien, a sophomore at Duke University, and lacrosse standout Kristen Kjellman, a Northwestern University sophomore, have been voted the nation's most outstanding athletes in their respective sports, according to results of national balloting among 1,000 NCAA member schools as part of the Collegiate Women Sports Awards program, now in its 29th year. For winning, each will receive the Honda Award, given annually to the top women athletes in 12 NCAA-sanctioned sports as well as an automatic nomination for the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year. The Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year will be determined by separate balloting involving all NCAA-member institutions and the winner will receive the Honda-Broderick Cup in New York on June 29, 2005. The nominees in golf were identified based on their finish at the NCAA Championships. Lacrosse nominees were selected by the USILWCA. A native of Narragansett, RI, Grzebien claimed

June 1, 2005 By BRUCE BERLET The Hartford Courant WEST HARTFORD _ As Liz Janangelo walked off the 12th green after sinking an 18-foot putt for her sixth birdie Wednesday, playing partner Cindy Miller gave her a high-five. Why do such a thing in the middle of a tournament? "It's fun to watch such great golf," Miller replied. Indeed, Janangelo needed no theatrics to win a third consecutive Connecticut Women's Open. A year ago, Janangelo had to make a 12-foot eagle putt to beat Suzy Whaley by a shot at the Country Club of Waterbury. Wednesday, Janangelo could have made a 14 on the par-4 18th at Wampanoag Country Club, her home course. Instead, she two-putted for par for a 7-under 66, a record 12-under 134 total and a record 11-stroke victory over pro Pamela Crikelair, who lives in Highland Beach, Fla., but travels in the summer out of her parents' house in Darien. "I hadn't won since this tournament last year, so it was a nice breakthrough," Janangelo said. "It's hard to
