Southern California and Arizona St. tied

CLE ELUM, Wash. -- Sophomore Kyung Kim is tied for the individual lead while sophomore Annie Park is fifth as No. 1 Southern California, in a roller coaster round, saw its multi-shot lead turned into a late deficit before finishing tied for first after the second round of the NCAA West Region on Friday at the Tumble Creek Club at Suncadia Resort.

The Trojans combined for a second-round 294 and now stand at 2-over 578 (284-294) tied with No. 6 Arizona State. Host Washington is third at 4-over 580 while No. 7 Oklahoma is the only other team within shouting distance, fourth at 10-over 586.

NCAA West, Central and East Regionals, each made up of 24 teams, conducted May 8-10, will determine the championship final field. The top eight teams plus two individuals from each field will advance to the championship round, scheduled for May 20-23 at the Tulsa (Oklahoma) C.C.

The Trojans, who already have a season-record eight wins this season, are seeking their NCAA-best 10th regional win and fifth in a row.
