YORBA LINDA, Calif. - Senior Rochelle Chan fired a season-low 2-under-par 70 in Tuesday's final round of The Gold Rush presented by Farmers Insurance, tying for second-place and leading the Long Beach State women's golf team to second at Yorba Linda Country Club.

Tournament host LBSU made a valiant comeback on the last day after being 13 shots down to tournament leading Gonzaga after Monday's second round. The 49ers posted the lowest score of the tournament with a 292 to finish just four shots behind the Bulldogs, claiming the team title with a 29-over 893. LBSU completed the two-day, 54-hole tournament at 33-over 897.

UC Riverside and Cal State Fullerton tied for third at 49-over, while Cal State Northridge placed fifth at 54-over.

Recording one of her best performances of the year, Chan came out with a strong start from the par-4 16th going 2-under on her first three holes with two consecutive birdies on Nos. 17 and 18. Coming out of the turn onto the front-nine, the Torrance native would par her next three holes before picking up her third birdie of the day on the par-4 4th to go 3-under. Chan would remain 3-under on the next eight holes before recording her only bogey of the round on the par-3 13th. She would end the day with two consecutive pars on the 14th and 15th holes.

Chan's final day score of 70 was her lowest round of the tournament, giving her a 54-hole score of 1-over 217. Chan finished just two strokes behind individual medalist Alice Kim of Gonzaga, after being seven strokes back going into the final round.

Sophomore Shawnee Martinez shot a 76 to tie for seventh at 9-over with two birdies, 10 pars and six bogeys.

Junior Chaewon Park carded her best round of the tournament with a 73 to finish one shot behind Martinez, tying for ninth at 10-over, that was highlighted by three birdies, 11 pars and four bogeys.

Sophomore Kassidy Teare also posted her lowest score of the tournament with a 73 to move up in the standings to tie for 15th at 13-over. Teare collected three birdies and 12 pars for the day.

Sophomore Janelle Suashot an 81 to tie for 41st at 24-over.

Freshman Sachi Hamada and redshirt junior Ashley Greer, competing as individuals, placed 29th and tied for 34th respectively. Hamada carded a 78, while Greer recorded an 81.
