West Lafayette, Indiana — The University of South Carolina women’s golf team shot a 21-over par 309 to hold on to 19th place in Thursday’s third round of the 2003 NCAA Championships. The Gamecocks are +81 after three days with a total score of 945. The Championships are being played at the Kampen Course of the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex in West Lafayette, Indiana, and feature the nation’s 24 best women’s collegiate teams in a 72-hole battle for the title.
