Stanford, Calif. --- The Washington State women's golf team, competing against illness as well as other collegiate teams, used the solid play of junior Tasha Browner to hold off Oregon and finish 17th in the Stanford Women's Intercollegiate.

Browner, who finished 32nd, fired a second round 73 and finished 13-over-par for the tournament. The Tarzana, Calif., native tied Stanford's Stephanie Keever, the nation's No. 1 ranked collegiate player.

Freshman Emily De'Ath carded a 17-over 233 and tied for 48th. The first-year Cougar was competing in only her second collegiate event and fired a season-best 76 in the first round.

Senior Jennifer Dodd struggled in the third round, shooting an 84 and placing 72nd. Dodd carded a 54-hole 241.

After bolting to a 15-stroke lead in the first round, Arizona held off Southern California to win the team medal. The Women of Troy finished six strokes out of first while third place Stanford was 13 stroked off the lead.

On the strength of a second round 68, Tulsa's Stacy Prammanasudh finished with a six-under-par 210 to grab top individual honors. Arizona's Lorena Ochoa was three strokes behind in second place.

The Cougars were without Donna Bell and Shanelle Roberts for the third straight tournament. The sophomore duo is battling mono.
