Women's Golf Places Fourth At Pac-10 Championships
April 25, 2001
The No. 3 USC women's golf team shot a stellar final round of golf on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to overcome Arizona, as the Trojans finished fourth at the 2001 Pac-10 Women's Golf Championships held at Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, Ariz., on Mon.-Wed. (April 23-25).
USC shot 292 in the final round--seven strokes lower than its round two score--to finish with a three-day total of 886. No. 2 Arizona took the team title with a score of 873, followed by Stanford (876), then tourney host Arizona State (883). Washington was fifth (890), followed by California (891), UCLA (905), Oregon State (912), Oregon (914) and Washington State (966).
Freshman Anna Rawson led the Women of Troy by shooting 221, including a career-low 67 in the final round, to finish tied for 10th--her first career top 10 finish. Lorena Ochoa of Arizona won individual medalist honors after winning a playoff over her teammate Natalie Gulbis (each shot 213). Kelli Kamimura of Washington was third (215), with Vikki Laing of California fourth (216).
Also for USC, defending Pac-10 champion and All-American sophomore Candie Kung shot 223 to tie for 15th, freshman Mikaela Parmlid tied for 18th (224), junior Leila Chartrand tied for 23rd (226) and freshman Anna Lee tied for 37th (231). Senior Nicole Dalkas competed as an individual but withdrew after the second round.
USC will look to bounce back next month at the NCAA West Regional Championships on May 10-12.
