Uribe UCLA lead NCAA womens golf championship


OWINGS MILLS, Md. ' UCLAs Maria Jose Uribe shot a 6-under 66 on Wednesday to take a two-stroke lead in the NCAA Division I Womens Golf Championships and help the Bruins open a stroke-shot advantage in the team competition.
Uribe, the Colombian star who won the 2007 U.S. Womens Amateur, had a 3-under 141 total on the Caves Valley course. Wake Forests Nanette Hill (71), Denvers Stephanie Sherlock (73) and Pepperdines Lisa McCloskey (69) were 1 under with two rounds left.
Its a pretty tough course, Uribe said. If youre not in the fairway, its going to be tough. If you have a good round, numbers like 66 and 67 are very reachable. I love to play courses like this.
UCLA topped the team standing at 13 over. Southern California was second at 20 over, followed by Denver (22 over), and Arizona State, Oklahoma State and North Carolina at 24 over.
