    Both freshman Annie Park and the No. 1 USC women's golf team are in second place after a 36-hole first round at the Bruin Wave Invitational on Monday (March 4), at the tough-playing El Caballero C.C. in Tarzana, Calif.

    The Trojans, coming off of a win at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate in New Orleans last week, combined for a 15-over 591 (290-301), eight back of first place UCLA (583). USC, seeking its third win of the season, held a seven-stroke lead after the first round, but will be fighting from behind during Tuesday's final 18 holes that begins at 7:30 a.m.

    Park is in second at even 144 (68-76), one of only two players not over par. The other is UCLA's Lee Lopez at 2-under 142 (72-70). Park's opening round was a thing of beauty featuring four birdies without a bogey in her first sub-70 round as a Trojan. The 68 was only of only two scores under 70 among the 81 players in the first two rounds, but golf's fickle nature showed itself in the second round as she went 4-over with eight bogeys against four birdies.

    Junior Sophia Popov (76-73), sophomore Doris Chen (73-76) and freshman Kyung Kim (73-76) are tied for 10th at 5-over 149 while junior Rachel Morris is tied for 29th at 13-over 157 (81-76).

    Freshman Kim Santiago, playing individually, is tied for 69th at 23-over 167 (83-84).
