College CentralAUSTIN, Texas -- The Vanderbilt women's golf team erased a six-stroke deficit and won its third tournament championship of the year today, riding the medalist performance of Chris Brady to capture the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational.
 
The Commodores jumped from the third team position to edge the host University of Texas by two shots, 935 to 937. Cal was third, another shot behind while Southern Cal placed fourth at 941.
