The second-ranked UCLA women's golf team will begin its Spring season this week at the 16th Annual Regional Challenge, hosted by the Palos Verdes Golf Club, Feb. 14-16.

Five of the nation's Top 25 teams will battle for the team and individual titles, including third-ranked USC, the defending champion. The course will play to a par of 71 over 5,912 yards.

UCLA has won this event twice in its 16-year history. In 2004, Charlotte Mayorkas led the Bruins to the top and won the individual title with a score of 207 (-3). UCLA also won the team championship in 2008.

The Bruins' lineup features one senior, two juniors and two sophomores. Third-year sophomore Lee Lopez will tee off at No.1. In six rounds of Fall competition, Lopez averaged 71.5 and was three-under par. She enters this event ranked 14th nationally.
