Purdue Places Third At NCAA Women's Golf Championships

For the fourth consecutive year Purdue's women's golf team finished among the nation's elite at the NCAA meet. Purdue shot its worst round of the four today with a 300, but it was still good enough to finish third behind champion USC and runner-up Duke. USC ran away with the event by firing a -19 1,133 through four rounds. Duke was 21 strokes back in second place with +2 for the week, while Purdue was third at +21, 40 strokes off the pace.

As mentioned earlier, Purdue had a real shot after finishing runner up by one stroke to USC at last week's West Regional. The Trojans were just fantastic over the last three rounds with an astounding 276 in round two, which was 8 strokes lower than anyone else's best round. Individually, senior Paula Reto finished her career with an overall third place finish. She was -2 for the tournament, eight strokes behind USC's Annie Park. She was two strokes behind Duke's Lindy Duncan for second.

Aurora Kan was 15th overall at a +4 for Purdue. Laura Gonzalez-Escallon had a +6, while Purdue's No. 4 golfer was Kishi Sinha at +16.
