ATHENS, Ga. -- The Badgers had their best round of the 72-hole NCAA tournament shooting an 11-over par 297 in the third round for a 43-over par 301-309-297--907, but remain in 24th place at the NCAA Division I Women's Golf Championship in Athens, Ga.

No. 1 Southern Cal is running away with the team title with a remarkable 19-under par 284-276-285--845 on the par 72, 6,372-yard University of Georgia course. Yesterday the Trojans shot a 12-under par 276 which bettered a record that had stood since 1999, when Arizona State posted an 11-under 277 at University Ridge Golf Course in Madison, Wis., hosted by the University of Wisconsin.

No. 3 Duke, now in second place, is the only other team under par at 2-under with 286-289-287--862. Purdue improved to a tie with three other teams for third with a 9-over par 289-289-295--873.

The Badgers teed off early and junior Kris Yoo continued her consistent performance with a 1-over par 73 today and is tied for 45th with 6-over pqr 75-74-73--222. Senior Lindsay Danielson is tied for 99th at 14-over 79-75-76--230. Aaren Ziegler had her best score of the week with a 1-over 73 and is also tied with Danielson for 99th with a 14-over par 76-80-73--230. Kimberly Dinh, who led the Badgers after the first round, is a stroke back and tied for 108th with 73-83-75--231. Alexis Nelson is tied for 118th with 77-79-79--235.

Should Yoo maintain her top 50 position in the player, leaderboard she will have the second best national finish by a Badger. Allie Blomquist finished tied for 18th with a 296 when she played as an individual in the 2001 NCAA Championship. Malinda Johnson finished tied for 55th with 310 when the UW team played in the 2003 national event.

This is just the second trip to the national championship for the Badger program and the first since 2003 when the team finished 24th with a 1291.
