PALOS VERDES ESTATES, Calif. –
Florida State University Sophomore Caroline Westrup shot a collegiate career-low 66 in the final round of the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge and finished tied for 16th place in the individual standings as play in the three-round, 54-hole event concluded Wednesday at the Palos Verdes Golf Club.

Florida State earned its best team total of the event as Westrup led the Seminoles to a 300 score over the final 18 holes. Westrup played her best golf of the event with six birdies, 11 holes at par and only one hole over par (she carded a five on the par four 18th hole). Freshman Lacey Agnew, who was competing in her first event as a Seminoles, carded a three-over par 74 in the final round for the Seminoles.

Pepperdine led the event wire-to-wire to claim the team championship. The Wave outdistanced Arizona State by eight strokes to claim the team championship. Minsun Cho of Pepperdine claimed individual medalist honors as she rallied from 10th place after two rounds to defeat teammate Jayvie Agojo by one stroke (218-219). Cho carded a two-under par 69 while Agojo finished with a six-over par 77 over the final 18 holes.
