Jennifer Rosales Shoots 68
May 20, 1998
MADISON, Wisc. -- USC freshman Jennifer Rosales shot a 4-under-par 68 in today's first round of the NCAA Women's Golf Championships at the University Ridge Golf Course in Madison, Wis. She is currently in a tie for fourth-place, three strokes behind first-round co-leaders Grace Park of Arizona State and Jenny Chuasiriporn of Duke, who each shot 65.
Rosales' performance was one stroke shy of the USC school record (67, Terri Thompson, 1988) and is the lowest round ever recorded at the NCAA Championships in Women of Troy history. Rosales, the 1996 Junior World Champion, has made a dramatic impact on the Women of Troy squad since enrolling at USC in January. After five spring tournaments, she went into the NCAA Championships with the team's lowest stroke average and was USC's top finisher at the recent Pacific-10 Conference Championships (222, seventh).
A native of Manila in the Philippines, Rosales is currently ranked at No. 50 in the MasterCard Collegiate Rankings.
