PALOS VERDES, Calif. ­- The seventh-ranked Ohio State women’s golf team finished eighth Wednesday at the 10th annual Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge. The Buckeyes posted a final-round score of 305, their lowest round of the tournament, and finished the event with a total of 918 (66). The tournament was held at the par 71 Palos Verdes Golf Club (5,912 yards) in Palos Verdes, Calif.

Ohio State senior Kristen White (Doylestown, Pa./Central Bucks East) finished third place on the individual leaderboard to lead the Buckeyes. White made par on every hole in the final round and finished with a final mark of 220 (+7).

“It was an odd day; I had 18 pars in a row,” White said. “I didn’t hit the ball very well but I made all the putts I needed to make to keep the round going.”

Senior Lindsay Knowlton (Sr., Toronto, Ontario/Havergal) tied for 30th at 230 (+17) after posting a final-round score of 77. Sophomore Dana Je (Orlando, Fla./Montverde Academy) tied for 48th with a three-round total of 235 (+22).
