Yesterday is old news; Wednesday's round created some Hawaiian buzz.

The 10th-ranked UCLA women's golf team surged to a four-shot victory at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic by tying the single round school record and overcoming a five shot-deficit in the final round.

The Bruins blistered The Bay Course at Kapalua with a 12-under par score of 276, tying the school record for lowest single round. They made 25 birdies on the day and finished with a 54-hole total of 854 (-10). Washington finished second at 858 (-8) with a three-under par round of 285 on Wednesday. Arizona State was third at 862 (-2), followed by Pepperdine at 869 (+5) in fourth place and fifth-place Oregon at 886 (+22).

"I'm very proud of the team's performance this week," said Hall of Fame Coach Carrie Forsyth, who picked up her 49th career team title. "We had a rough start after the first day and set our goal to finish the event at even or under par. We not only accomplished our goal, we won the tournament. In the last two rounds the team did a great job of staying in the moment and focusing on hitting quality shots."

Sophomore Erynne Lee led the Bruins' birdie barrage with eight of her own in a record-tying round of 65 (-7) on The Bay Course. Lee finished at one-under par 215 and tied for ninth. She climbed 25 spots on the leader board with her collegiate best score.

Senior Tiffany Lua dropped six birdie putts on Wednesday for a 70 (-2) and tied for fifth at 213 (-3). Junior Ani Gulugian recorded four birdies en route to an even par 72. She tied for 16th at one-over par 217. Senior Lee Lopez fired a 69 (-3) on the strength of four birdies and tied for 26th at 220 (+4). Freshman Louise Ridderstrom posted a 75 (+3) with three birdies and tied for 219 (+3).

Pepperdine's Grace Na won the individual title with a three-round total of 210 (-10), including a final round score of 68 (-4).
