Baton Rouge, La.--- The No. 9-ranked Georgia women's golf team came perilously close to falling short of a chance to defend their 2001 NCAA Championship before rallying during the final four holes to finish seventh at the NCAA East Regional here at the University Club on Saturday. With only top-eight teams from the Regional advancing to the NCAA Championships field, the Lady Bulldogs slipped to 10th place with four holes left to play before climbing to seventh in the final standings. Georgia carded a 9-over 297 in the third round and finished play at 892. "I told the team I think we grew up some today," head coach Todd McCorkle said. "We learned we can play well under some of the most intense conditions you can imagine. I'm extremely proud of how well we held together down the stretch."
