Women's Golf Shoots Its Lowest Team Round In Nearly Three Years To Surge Into Second At Arizona Invitational

Feb. 25, 2003

Tucson, Ariz. - All-American senior Mikaela Parmlid and freshman Irene Cho each shot 69 on Tuesday to lead an impressive team round that catapulted the No. 9 USC women's golf team into second place after two rounds of the Arizona Invitational being held at the Arizona National Golf Course.

USC entered the day in eighth place after shooting a first-round 308, but behind Parmlid and Cho (whose 69 was a career low), the Women of Troy fired a 286--their lowest round since shooting a 285 the 2000 Golf World Invitational.

The Women of Troy have a two-round total of 594, eight strokes behind Pepperdine at 586. ASU is third (595), followed by Tennessee (602) and UCLA and Vanderbilt (604).

Parmlid's stellar round gave her a team-leading two-day total of 148. She is tied for 10th with three other players, six strokes behind overall leaders Erica Blasberg of Arizona and Carolina Llano of Pepperdine (142).

Fellow senior Becky Lucidi isn't far behind, as she shot 74 to bring her total to 149, tied for 13th overall. Freshman Tanya Dergal is also tied for 13th (149), but she is competing as an individual.

Also for USC, juniors Rachel Bell and Anna Rawson are tied for 27th (151), while Cho is tied for 34th (152).

The final round of the Arizona Invitational begins on Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. with a shotgun start.
