The Lady Trojans - Your 2008 NCAA Golf Champions


From the USC Website.

A tournament that was played in heat, cold, wind, hail and rain, one played in the disappearing light of dusk and one played often with lightning in the background, finally found some calm during the final round's last nine holes.

The skies cleared and the sun returned, the winds stopped and the grass dried off a little bit. What was left was the No. 1 USC women's golf team, fighting to maintain a small lead in the 2008 NCAA Women's Golf Championships against crosstown rival UCLA, a team that refused to give an inch.

But the Women of Troy were up to the fight. Beginning the final round with a three-stroke lead, USC never buckled under the pressure and kept the Bruins at bay during six hours of battle to win the 2008 NCAA team title at the University of New Mexico Championship G.C. in Albuquerque, N.M., on Friday (May 23).

Troy led after each round for a wire-to-wire win. Going back to the 2008 Pac-10 and NCAA West Regional Championships, USC finished its last nine rounds in first.

This one takes the sting away from losing to ucla in Water Polo a couple of weeks ago.

Congrats Ladies! Way bring it home!!
