SAN DIEGO, Calif., - Senior Kendra Little led the No. 36 University of Oregon women's golf team in final day action Tuesday in the Battle at Rancho Bernardo.

The Eugene native carded the team's low round of the tourney - an even-par 72 - and also led the squad in the final standings (23rd-tie, 76-78-72-226). Tuesday's score marked the fifth time in nine rounds this spring and 53rd time in her career that she has claimed UO's low round.

She also paced UO in a tourney's final standings for the fifth time in her eight events in 2010-11 and 21st occasion career-wise, while her par score was her third of the season and 12th all-time as a Duck (to go with 25 under-par rounds).

UO also counted scores Tuesday from freshman Raphaela Dyer (60th-tie, 83-74-79-236), sophomore Cheyenne Hickle (65th-tie, 73-86-79-238) and junior Ashley Edwards (65th-tie, 81-80-77-238). Sophomore Avery Sills rounded out the Duck contingent (86th-t, 79-87-81-247) in her fourth appearance for the squad this year.

Team-wise, the Ducks finished 14th (309-318-307-934) in the event that featured six top-10 teams and 10 more squads ranked top 50 nationally this week by Golf Stat.

Overall in the team race, No. 7 Purdue (first, 295-292-292-879) maintained its seven-stroke lead over No. 1 USC (second, 299-295-292-886). No. 3 UCLA (third, 293-304-290-887), No. 20 Georgia (fourth, 310-304-289-903) and No. 22 Auburn (fifth, 305-307-293-905) rounded out the top five.

On the individual leaderboard, Purdue's Laura Gonzalez added five strokes to her lead (70-71-68-209) and finished six strokes ahead of Therese Koelbaek of UNLV (second-tie, 72-70-73-215) and Lizette Salas of USC (second-tie, 73-7171-215).
