Her tally of 544 topped her team and was fourth overall on […]

Her older brothers thrived as they grew up in South Korea, but for Dahee Jung, the future was different. She left her homeland with her family and moved to Hawaii, where her brothers were born. Jung, a scholar-athlete at Sacred Hearts, feels at home with her parents, with her teammates and classmates, teachers and coaches. The pulse of island life fits her and fits her well. Jung is also the 2018 ILH precision riflery champion, and with first-team all-star teammate […]
