STANFORD, CALIF.- It was a record-shattering day for the Duke Women’s Golf team on Sunday, as the Blue Devils cruised to one of their most-impressive victories in school history at the Stanford Pepsi Intercollegiate.  Duke won by a remarkable 27 strokes over eight teams in the top-20 and five in the top-10 nationally at the 6,025-yard, Par 71 Stanford Golf Course in Palo Alto, Calif.

“I am very excited about the win today,” said Duke Head Coach Dan Brooks.  “This was a good field and a great win for our team.  It is a fall win and we are aware of that, but it is very exciting.  It is a great way to finish up after flying across the country.”

The victory was the 92nd of Brooks’ 22-year career with the Blue Devils, which breaks the NCAA Division I record for most wins all-time in women’s golf history.  He broke Mark Gale’s record of 91, who coached at San Jose State from 1978-1996.  Over the last eight years, Brooks has led the Blue Devils to three national titles, 66 event titles, seven ACC titles, three NCAA individual champions and 35 individual medalist honors.

“This is something that I didn’t really think about much,” said Brooks.  “When I reflect on it I am most excited about the great student-athletes that I’ve been associated with.  I am blessed to be associated with an excellent school to coach at and with the student-athletes that choose to come and play for us.”

The Blue Devils shot a school record round of 271 on Sunday and finished with a school record 54-hole total of 834, which is 18-under-par.  The next closest team in was second-ranked UCLA (861) followed by Southern California (863), Pepperdine (869), Arizona State (882), UNLV (883), Vanderbilt (886), Arizona (886), California (888) and Stanford (888) in the top 10.

Over the three days, Duke carded rounds of 283, 280 and 271 to finish with its record-breaking total.  The previous 54-hole best for the Blue Devils was an 838 score from the 2004 ACC Championship.  When the final results came in, three Duke golfers finished in the top-three led by senior Liz Janangelo

“There were a lot of players in this field that can shoot in the 60s,” said Brooks.  “We were fortunate to have several of our golfers shoot in the 60s and it was exciting to watch.  We were feeling like we wished there were more holes as they would have gone more under par if we had more holes to play.”

In her best tournament since her sophomore year when she was named the National Player of the Year, Janangelo carded a tournament-best round of 65 on Sunday to claim individual medalist honors with an 11-under-par total of 202, which broke the Duke 54-hole record.  A West Hartford, Conn., product, Janangelo won her seventh career tournament to rank tied for second along with Jenny Chuasiriporn.

“It feels like the weight has been lifted off my shoulders,” said Janangelo.  “I knew I could make it [the win] happen.  I had to work hard and wait for it to come together.  It was nice to put three good scores together.  I hit it close today and gave myself a lot of birdie opportunities.  I hit a lot of greens and only missed nine all weekend.   I averaged 15 greens hit per round.”

For the tournament, Janangelo carded rounds of 70, 67 and 65.  She totalled six birdies on the day and notched birdies on four of the five par threes. 

“I was most excited this tournament of the way Liz played,” said Brooks.  “It was great to see her play the kind of golf we know she can play.  Today she was hitting at the pins and was playing excellent golf.”

Finishing tied for second in the individual competition was junior Anna Grzebien and freshman Amanda Blumenherst with four-under-par totals of 209.  Grzebien, a native of Narragansett, R.I., collected a four-under-par ledger of 67 on Sunday and her three-day total of 209 tied a career best.

Blumenherst, from Scottsdale, Ariz., notched her ninth straight round of even or under par to start her collegiate career on Sunday as she totaled a 68.  In three tournaments as a freshman, Blumenherst has finished first, tied for second and tied for third. 

Jennie Lee, out of Huntington Beach, Calif., turned in her second straight round of 71 on Sunday to finish tied for 16th with a total of 217. In three collegiate tournaments, Lee has finished no lower than 16th in each of them.  Jennifer Pandolfi concluded the weekend in tied for 61st place with a 54-hole total of 229, after posting a round of 75 on the final day.

“It feels great,” said Janangelo on Brooks’ winning his 92nd career tournament.  “It goes to show that if you recruit good talent and character good things will happen.  To have him register 92 wins is incredible and it is a feat that won’t be accomplished by anyone else soon.”

Duke will next play in the Auburn Derby Invitational from Nov. 4-6 in Auburn, Ala.
