Another year, another NCAA national championship for our UCLA Bruins. With the women's tennis team pulling out an epic 4-3 victory over North Carolina in the NCAA championship game yesterday to clinch Westwood's 111th national championship, the women's golf team now looks to add to the Bruins' trophy case with UCLA's 112th national championship trophy.
After the first day of NCAA championship tourney action, the Lady Bruins find themselves in second place with a team score of 291, +11 over par, trailing behind only Oklahoma (288, +8) and two strokes ahead of third-placed Duke, Southern California, and Arizona State (293, +13). The Bruins will look to put together another strong day in their bid to make an assault on the top of the leaderboard, with tee times for UCLA beginning at 5:30 a.m. PST for the Lady Bruins. For complete information on tee times tomorrow, you can check out this helpful informational graphic from the fine folks at Golfstat.
