Women's Golf Signs Two
Nov. 19, 2014

BOISE, Idaho - The Boise State women's golf team has signed Kinsley Bonfilio (Boise, Idaho) and Adara Pauluhn (Niwot, Colo.) to National Letters of Intent, head coach Nicole Bird announced Wednesday.

"I am very excited to add Adara and Kinsley to our roster next fall," Bird said. "I don't know that I've ever met two golfers this excited about becoming Broncos. They each have a strong work ethic, both in the classroom and on the course.

"I know that with the leadership provided by our rising senior class, these two will learn so much their first year and be ready to carry on the legacy of Boise State women's golf."

Bonfilio, currently attending Bishop Kelly High School, was a member of Idaho's 2014 Junior Americas Cup Team. As a junior in 2013-14, she helped lead the Knights to the Idaho 4A State Championship, finishing in third place individually. She also finished second at the 4A District 2 Championships, earning all-league honors along the way. Bonfilio won both the McCall Junior Amateur and the Whitetail Junior Amateur earlier this year, and finished fourth at the 2014 Idaho State Women's Amateur Championship.

Bonfilio moved to Boise from State College, Pa., where she captured the District 6 Championship as a sophomore while competing for St. Joseph's Catholic Academy in 2012-13.

She is a member of the National Honor Society and boasts a 4.0 grade-point average, and has also lettered in volleyball, track and field and basketball. She was elected President of the Student Council as a freshman and sophomore, and is currently a Senior Representative for the Student Council.

Pauluhn has qualified to the Colorado 5A State Championships in each of the previous three years, winning two conference championships and garnering first-team all-region honors. She also qualified for the Callaway Junior World Championship, and is a two-time Optimist Qualifier and a two-time Big I qualifier.

Pauluhn, a first-degree black belt, has been a member of her school's honor roll every year, garnering honorable mention academic all-state honors this past year.
