Arizona State senior Monica Vaughn won the NCAA women's golf title Monday with two birdies over her last four holes and with help from a late collapse by Jennifer Kupcho. Arizona State beat Stanford earlier on Wednesday in the semifinals to return to the championship round. After Stephanie Lau eagled hole No. 11, Strom's lead was cut to one in match play and Northwestern looked to dig its self out of a hole they dug early with poor putting. Mao sunk hers while Then left hers an inch short, giving Northwestern the finals berth.

The honor came a day after Vaughn won the NCAA individual title in a late comeback.

The Sun Devils defeated the Wildcats 3 1/2 - 1/12 in Wednesday's NCAA Women's Golf Championship final to claim their 8th NCAA title, more than any other program in NCAA women's golf history. She birdied the next two holes, won a third straight hole with a par and was 4 up. "I'm not going to give up.' I went out and fought to the bitter end", Vaughn said.

"The goal was to stay present, stay relaxed, and we tried to just enjoy ourselves out there", head coach Missy Farr-Kaye said.

Arizona State won its eighth women's golf title, extending its NCAA record, and it's first since 2009.

Stanford lost in the championship match a year ago to Washington.

Just that happened, up four with four to go, Strom needed to win just one more hole to win ASU the national title. Strom had to make a 7-foot par putt on the 18th hole and she won the next hole to beat Stanford and advance.

Northwestern was making only its sixth appearance in the NCAA Women's Golf Championship, and it was trying to join Purdue as the only Big Ten school to win. "We went in with a lead today, but there's a lot of talent on Northwestern's team and they have some great players and they got it done today". "I'm so happy for them that they get to be national champions for the rest of their lives". "But this was a year when we had a player turn pro and we were an underdog, but we still had a chance to win and I'm proud of this group".
