College CentralPALO ALTO, Calif. - The Arizona State women's golf team won its second consecutive tournament Sunday, capturing a five-stroke victory at the Stanford/Pepsi Intercollegiate held Oct. 15-17 at the par 70, 5,853-yard Stanford Golf Course.
 
It was the second straight tournament win for the Sun Devils who earned a victory at the Price's Give 'Em Five Intercollegiate in Las Cruces, N.M., on Oct. 4-5.
 
This victory also gives the ASU its first back-to-back tournament victories since the Sun Devils won the 1998 NCAA title and then opened the following season with a victory at the 1998 Japan TOPY Cup. Prior to this year, ASU had not won consecutive tournaments in the same season since the Sun Devils captured the 1997 NCAA West Regional and the 1997 NCAA Championship.
 
ASU finished with a three-round total of 12-over 852 to top second-place finisher Pepperdine by five strokes (857). Rounding out the top five were Washington (861), defending NCAA champion UCLA (862) and tournament host Stanford (869).
 
Individually, three Sun Devils finished in the top 10 at Stanford, led by freshman Louise Stahle who tied for second with a three-under total of 207. It marked the third time in three collegiate events that Stahle has garnered runner-up honors.
 
Sophomore Tiffany Tavee carded a one-under 69 in Sunday's final round to tie for sixth with a total of two-over 212 for her second consecutive top 10 finish, while junior Alissa Kuczka turned in her best finish of the year with a tie for 10th at four-over 214. Senior Erin Tone tied for 20th with a three-round total of 219, while sophomore Charmaine Erasmus finished in a tie for 73rd (234).
 
Washington State's Anastasia Kostina won individual medalist honors at the Stanford/Pepsi Intercollegiate with a three-round total of five-under 205.
 
The Sun Devils return to action next week at the Kent Youel Invitational in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Oct. 25-27.
