As a team, the Sun Devils shot the second best round of the day, a one over 289, to move from a tie for ninth all the way to the third seed.

Albane Valenzuela of Stanford won three of her last four holes to close out her match on the 17th hole, and the Cardinal took the first step toward reaching the title match for the third straight year in the NCAA Women's Golf Championship.

And that'll do it.

The Sun Devils created some space on Wednesday.

The NCAA has held women's golf championships since 1982. Lau made a long putt for eagle on the 11th hole, cutting Strom's lead to one.

USC's hopes for a fourth national championships were halted in the 2017 NCAA semifinals as Northwestern came back Wednesday (May 24) morning to erase the Trojans' slim lead from Tuesday and complete the match play win, 3-2, on a playoff hole at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill.

The Sun Devils already had two points on the board thanks to Olivia Mehaffey and Roberta Liti. Liti's 5&4 win over Janet Mao 5&4 was similarly decisive, leaving plenty of time to cheer on their teammates.

Monica Vaughn, who won the NCAA individual title on Monday, kept her big week going by almost holing a wedge on the 18th hole and making birdie to send her match against Stanford freshman Albane Valenzuela to extra holes.

Monica Vaughn didn't know the score, and she might not have believed how the final hour unfolded that enabled the Arizona State senior to capture the NCAA women's golf title on Monday. Arizona State and me are really going to miss this young lady.

When play resumed at first light Wednesday, ASU capitalized on a fresh start. Vaughn, the individual champion jumped out to an early lead winning the first hole but Kim fought back and after 10 holes Kim was up by three. This was the first one for our program. She was an assistant on the 2009 team that won at Caves Valley when the format was stroke play, and she was part of the Arizona State that won its first title in 1990. "We have hung in together and I am so happy for them [the Sundevils] that they can be national champions for the rest of their lives". Then, she was the spark plug for the Sun Devils in the match play. "We knew at the beginning of the year that this team had it in them to win a national championship".
