Update: College golfer not in trouble for washing her car
It looks like the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) doesn't have an issue with the female golfer washing her car by hand using a university hose and water supply, cbssports reported.
The May 30 story said the following statement was released by the West Coast Conference:
By process, schools self-report violations to the conference office and in this instance, what was reported – regarding the car wash – turned out to be a non-issue. We're glad that our schools take NCAA compliance so seriously and are proactive in their approach. Part of our ongoing commitment to compliance is constant education on NCAA legislation and interpretation.

On Thursday, it was reported that the golfer was going to have to pay a $20 fine after the university reported her carwashing activity to the NCAA.
The NCAA was reported to have agreed with the university. And, according to "the governing body's reasoning, the water and hose in question were not available to regular students at the school; as a result, the golfer was requested to re-pay the perceived value of the benefits in question – a whopping $20," the story said.
