Oct. 31, 2007
Continued strong by play by sophomore Belen Mozo and freshman Joanne Lee propelled the No. 4 USC women's golf team to a second-place finish after the final day of the 2007 Kent Youel Invitational at the Kapolei G.C. on Wednesday (Oct. 31).
USC finished with a combined 21-over 885 (294-301-290), four strokes back of first-place UCLA (881). USC's final round was lowest for the field and the Women of Troy turned in their third top 2 finish in a row.
Mozo and Lee tied for third overall at 2-over 218, one shot back of first place finishers Tiffany Joh and Maria Jose Uribe, both of UCLA. Lee's previous best finish in two starts this season was a tie for 35th.
Mozo's 218 consisted of 71-76-71 while Lee posted a 72-75-71. For Mozo, it was her fourth top 11 finish in as many outings.
Freshman Lizette Salas moved up into a tie for 11th at 8-over 224 (79-73-72) while senior Dewi Claire Schreefel tied for 16th at 10-over 226 (72-77-77). Sophomore Caroline Kim, in her first tournament of the season, rounded out USC's team efforts in 76th with a 28-over 244 (81-87-76).
