Even without a three-time first-team All-American, the No. 1 ranked UCLA women's golf team has won its first two tournaments of the season.

Senior Stephanie Kono captured second place at the Stanford Intercollegiate Sunday, but none of her scores counted in a three-shot UCLA team victory. That's because the three-year letterwinner played as an individual competitor, while five of her teammates won the title without her.

The top-ranked Bruins led wire-to-wire in securing their second team title in as many starts. They posted a cool two-over par score of 286 in Sunday's final round for a 54-hole total of 842 (-10). That score beat runner-up Vanderbilt by three strokes and third place Washington by five. Oregon was fourth at 848 (-4), followed by fifth-place Oklahoma State at 850 (-2).

Kono led her teammates with three rounds below 70 and a 54-hole score of 202 (-11), a personal collegiate best. But she didn't qualify for the last spot a week ago after advancing to Stage III of the LPGA's Qualification Tournament last month and, thus, played without her teammates. Senior Brianna Do, the reigning U.S. Women's Amateur Publinks champion, had a similar experience. She tied for 25th at Stanford.

The UCLA fivesome of juniors Lee Lopez and Tiffany Lua, sophomore Ani Gulugian and freshmen Erynne Lee and Kyle Roig has tasted nothing but victory in two appearances. Lopez led the charge this week, tying for sixth place at 208 (-5) following a final round 71 (E) and Lua, a USGA veteran, placed ninth at 210 (-3) after her third consecutive round of 70 (-1). Gulugian tied for 16th at 213 (E) following Sunday's 71 (E) and Lee tied for 25th at 215 (+2) following a 74 (+3) in the third round. Roig tied for 39th at 218 (+5).
