Now that men's tennis has secured the 100th NCAA team title in USC history, women's golf has a chance to push the Trojans towards their next milestone - 125 national championships (USC has 122 and counting).  But, the Women of Troy have some ground to make up after two rounds at the NCAA Championships in Tulsa. 

No. 1 USC sits in a fourth place tie at the midway point with rival UCLA at +24, which is nine strokes back of the leader, Oklahoma, the school men's tennis just beat for the title.

Click here for the complete recap.

The Women of Troy have been paced by Doris Chen (67-72) who is in fourth place on the individual leaderboard at 1-under. Freshman Karen Chung stepped up with the round of the day shooting even-par 70, and she is tied for 16th individually (74-70).

Meanwhile, the Trojans two highest ranked players, Annie Park and Kyung Kim, are having trouble finding their rhythm in Oklahoma.  Park, the defending individual champion, is at 10-over at the midway point, while Kim is 11-over.  Senior captain Sophia Popov was the dropped score in each of the first two rounds shooting a pair of 79s.

USC is within striking distance and has the championship mettle to ascend the leaderboard.  Thursday is officially moving day in Tulsa.
