    Feb. 8, 2015


    Freshman Amy Lee, a first-semester new enrollee, kicked off her USC career Sunday (Feb. 8) with a 3-under 68 to grab a share of first place and lead the No. 6 USC women's golf team in the first round of the annual Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge, the first event on the spring schedule.

    The Trojans finished the first round in third at a combined 3-over 287 despite playing without senior Doris Chen and junior Annie Park in the lineup. Baylor finished the first day in first at 3-under 281 while Arizona State was second (1-over 285).

    Lee, who graduated high school a semester early from Brea (Calif.) High, was even on the front 9 and took off on the back, going 3-under with three straight birdies between the 14th and 16th holes in en route to a tie for first.

    USC, a two-time winner in the fall, also saw junior Kyung Kim open the spring slate with a 1-over 72 to tie for 13th with a two-birdie day while sophomore Gabriella Then is tied for 18th after a 2-over 73.

    Sophomore Karen Chung is tied for 28th at 3-over 74 while sophomore Elizabeth Doty is tied for 75th after an opening 79. Junior Victoria Morgan, playing individually, is tied for 43rd at 5-over 76.

    The Trojans will begin second-round play at 10:12 a.m. tomåorrow off the first hole.
