PepperdinePepperdine's women opened the spring portion of their 2002-03 schedule in impressive fashion as the Waves won the team title at the rain-shortened Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge. The tournament was played at the Palos Verdes Golf Club in nearby Palos Verdes, Calif.
 
Heavy rains in Southern California forced the cancellation of the final round of the tournament on Wednesday. The field included 14 teams that are currently ranked in the top 25 of the Golfweek and Golfworld polls.
 
Weather conditions were ideal on Monday, but most of Tuesday's play was conducted in steady rain which resulted in much higher scores.
 
Pepperdine, ranked No. 15 nationally by Golfweek and Golfworld, won the 18-team tournament with a 36-hole score of 598.
 
Katherine HullThe Waves opened the tournament on Monday with an even-par score of 284, which was just one stroke off the single-round team school record. Pepperdine ballooned to a score of 314 on Tuesday, but it was still tied for the fifth-lowest score of the day.
 
USC finished in second place at 603, five strokes behind the Waves, while top-ranked Arizona finished third with a final team total of 606. Oklahoma State (607) and UCLA (608) rounded out the top five teams in the final individual standings.
 
Senior All-American Katherine Hull won individual medalist honors with a 2-over par total of 144. She carded rounds of 69 and 75 to win the tournament by one stroke over Erica Blasberg of Arizona and Charlotte Mayorkas of UCLA.
 
Pepperdine senior All-American Lindsey Wright finished fourth overall with a 4-over-par total of 146.
 
The Waves return to action Feb. 24-26 when the team travels to Tucson to compete at the three-day Arizona Wildcat Classic.
