The No. 3 USC women's golf team--in fourth place and 19 strokes back of eventual tourney champ Arizona after the first round of play--made up 13 strokes in the final two rounds to take second place at the Stanford Women's Intercollegiate held on Stanford Golf Course in Stanford, Calif., on Oct. 20-22 (Friday-Sunday).
USC shot 879, six strokes back of Arizona's 873. Stanford finished third (886), followed by Tulsa (894) and New Mexico State (896).
