Purdue Women's Golf: 2010 NCAA Champions
The Purdue women's golf team won the 2010 NCAA Championship, edging the University of Southern California by one stroke. The Boilermakers finished with a one-over par 1,153 - a school-record low score for 72 holes and the second-lowest four-round team score in NCAA Championships history.
Purdue became the first Big Ten Conference and the first northern-based women's golf team to win a national championship. Moreover, from 1993 through 2009, the national champion was either Duke or a Pac-10 Conference school all but once. Georgia was the exception, winning the 2001 championship.
Devon Brouse was named the National Golf Coaches Association National Coach of the Year.
Purdue now has won three NCAA team championships (also 1961 men's golf and 1999 women's basketball), and the 1932 men's basketball team was selected as national champions by the Helms Athletic Foundation (the first NCAA-sanctioned postseason tournament was not held until 1939).
