West Lafayette, Indiana - The Tulsa women's golf team held off host Purdue and captured the team championship at the NCAA Central Regionals at the Kampen Golf Course on Saturday. The Hurricane, with a four stroke lead heading into today's final round, carded a final round 313 to grab a two-stroke victory over the Boilermakers.

Tulsa scored rounds of 300-291-313 for its winning 904 total, while Purdue shot a final round 311 for its 906 total. The victory was the second straight team title for the Hurricane. Tulsa captured a 25-stroke victory at the Western Athletic Conference Championships in late April.

TU's Stacy Prammanasudh, who began the day in first place individually, placed second overall with a final round four-over par 76. She carded a 54-hole total of two-over par 218, just two strokes behind individual medalist Kari Damron from host Purdue. Damron carded a final round one-under par 71 to capture the individual title with an even-par 216.

Prammanasudh's second-place finish was her ninth top-10 performance in 10 tournaments this year, and her sixth top-five finish of the season. Tulsa freshman Suzie Fisher finished in fourth-place overall with an eight-over par 224, after carding a final round 79 on Saturday. It was Fisher's second consecutive fourth-place finish and her fourth-top-10 peformance of the season.

Tulsa and Purdue will advance to the NCAA Championships along with third-place Texas, fourth-place Oklahoma State and New Mexico State, sixth-place LSU, seventh-place Kent State and eighth-place California. These eight teams will compete for the national championship along with eight teams from both the east and west regions, May 22-25, at the Mission Inn Golf and Tennis Resort in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida.

Tulsa will be making its 23rd appearance at the national championship event in 27 years of the programs existence.



The Hurricane also received top-25 performances from junior Dani Mallon and freshman Julie Tvede, both scoring three round totals of 234. Sophomore Maiko Senda finished in 32nd place with a 236 total.
