    The death of a former University of California at Berkeley golfer -- Diane Kwon, 21, found dead in her car in a Fremont parking lot on Labor Day -- has been ruled suspicious by police, according to reports.

    Kwon, who golfed at Kennedy High in Fremont before playing two seasons for the Bears, was discovered in her 2003 Honda Accord, parked at 3950 Mowry Ave in Fremont, at 11 p.m. on Labor Day by a passer-by, according to police. It was unclear how long Kwon had been there, and the cause of death has yet to be determined, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

    An accomplished golfer, Kwon won consecutive San Francisco city championships in 2006 and 2007 and was her high school team's MVP and No. 1 golfer all four years of high school. She was ranked in Golfweek's Top 10 at one point in her career, according to the Cal athletics department.

    She had not played this past season at Cal. Kwon's coach at Cal, Nancy McDaniel, declined to comment on Kwon's death.
