    USC Moves Into 4th At Annika Intercollegiate After 2nd Round

    Sept. 29, 2014


    Senior Doris Chen and sophomore Karen Chung both carded 72s while junior walk-on Victoria Morgan made her first career hole-in-one as USC moved into fourth after the second round of the ANNIKA Intercollegiate at the Reunion Watson Course in Orlando, Fla., on Monday (Sept. 29).

    The Trojans are now a combined 2-over 578 (287-291) after a 3-over second round, six back of first-place South Carolina (572). Arizona is second (573) with Northwestern third (575). Oklahoma State, Stanford and defending NCAA champion Duke are tied for fifth (579).

    Chen is tied for fourth at 2-under 142 (70-72) after a two-birdie, two-bogey (all on the front) second-round. She finished the round with 10 straight pars.

    Chung is tied for 12th at even 144 (72-72). She mixed three birdies and three bogeys and was under par until the final hole.

    Sophomore transfer Elizabeth Doty is tied for 25th at 2-over 146 (72-74), sophomore Gabriella Then is tied for 40th at 5-over 149 (73-76) while Morgan is tied for 44th at 6-over 150 (77-73).

    Morgan's ace came on the par 3, 188-yard seventh hole on what she called "the shot of her life."

    "The 2 girls I was playing with hit before me and hit their shots to either side of the hole about 5 feet away," Morgan said. "Usually on that hole, I would aim at the center of the green. But jokingly in my head I thought 'Well the only way to beat their shots is to hit it in the hole.' So I struck maybe the most pure 5 iron I've ever hit. It landed about nine feet away and had just enough to roll in."
