ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Annie Park shot a 1-under 71 to top the individual standings and help Southern California take its third NCAA women's tournament title with a record-setting team performance Friday.

Southern California finished at 19-under 1,133 — 15 strokes better than the previous tournament mark set by UCLA in 2004 — to beat second-place Duke by 21 strokes.

Third-place Purdue was 21 over — 40 shots behind Southern California.

Park, a freshman from Levittown, N.Y., finished at 10 under for a six-stroke victory over Duke's Lindy Duncan. Kyung Kim and Sophia Popov tied for sixth at 1 over for Southern California, which finished second to Alabama last year by one shot.
