    A day after combining for the lowest round in tournament history in at least 13 years to take a one-stroke lead, the No. 1 USC women's golf team struggled to find the same the groove and finished second at the annual Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge at the Palos Verdes (Calif.) G.C. on Wednesday (Feb. 13).

    USC finished at 27-over 879 (298-280-301), nine back of UCLA (870) and two better than third-place Duke (881). The Trojans lost ground also when junior Sophia Popov was disqualified due to a scorecard infraction.

    Freshman Kyung Kim, who won USC's final fall event, finished third at 3-over 216 (74-69-73), three out of first place. She opened play at 3-over through six holes but birdied 7 and 8 and was 1-over on the back 9.

    Freshman Annie Park, in her first team competition of her Trojan career, tied for 18th at 10-over 223 (72-76-75). She got off to a rough start for the second day in a row, going 4-over through five holes. But she righted the ship to finish par the rest of the way.

    Junior Rachel Morris tied for 22nd at 11-over 224 (77-69-78) while sophomore Doris Chen tied for 25th at 12-over 225 (76-74-75).
