Tucson, AZ -

No. 9 Stanford came storming back over the final four holes Sunday at Trysting Tee Golf Club in Corvallis, Oregon to steal the 2014 Pac-12 Women's Golf Championship from the No. 11 Arizona Wildcats.

The Cardinal won with an 869 (+5) score. UA and No. 1 USC shared the runner-up finish with scores of 870 (+6). The Wildcats shot rounds of 287, 287 and 296. No. 2 UCLA finished fourth with an 871 (+7).

No. 1 Alison Lee of UCLA won the individual medal with a 211 (-5).

No. 13 sophomore Lindsey Weaver was Arizona's top finisher for the fifth time this season. She fired a 214 (-2) with rounds of 68, 72 and 74. She is the Wildcats' top finisher at the conference championships since Lorena Ochoa also earned a runner-up finish in 2002.

Lee made just one bogey on the day and her steady play proved efficient enough to jet past Weaver who struggled early on the back nine.

On the men's side, The Wildcats finished the conference tournament at the Gallery Golf Club in Marana in ninth place behind new champion Stanford.

"I was very happy to host the event this week," head coach Jim Anderson said. "All the teams were treated to true championship golf. We saw all conditions. We saw wind, rain, warmth, cold, calm and everything else. The golf course was set up perfectly and challenging, which is usually a really good recipe. The best team won this week."

Stanford became the seventh school to win the team title since 2004 after leading the field for the entire tournament. The Cardinals compiled a low score of 1438 after a 355 fourth round score. Patrick Rodgers of Stanford also took the individual champion honors with a total of 281. Rodgers shot a tournament low of 65 in the second round.

Junior Alex McMahon led the team for the overall tournament with a combined total of 293 with a tie for ninth place finish.
