STANFORD, California. - Third year UCLA student  Bronte Law from Cheshire won the Stanford Intercollegiate hosted by Condoleezza Rice for the second year in a row, shooting a 3-under 68 on Tuesday to finish at -8 (67-70-68-205) for the tournament.
As a team, the Bruins finished third (+3, 855) behind Stanford (847) and Southern California (853) in a field of 17 teams and 9-0 players..
Law, who also shot 8-under 205 to win the tournament last season, gives the Bruins three straight individual titles at the Stanford Intercollegiate (Alison Lee, 2013).
 It is the fourth individual title on the US women's college circuit for GB and Ireland international player Law, who also won the 2013 Pac-12 Preview and the 2015 Regional Challenge, and the 34th during head coach Carrie Forsyth's tenure.
Law had six birdies in her final round (#2, #5, #6, #9, #16, #17), with bogeys on the seventh, 11th and 15th. She led the field with 16 birdies and was a tournament-best 5-under on the par 4's.
Senior Louise Ridderström, playing as an individual, also fired a 3-under 68 on Tuesday to finish the tournament in a tie for eighth at +1 (73-73-68-214). Ridderström, who started on the 10th tee, birdied #11, #12, #6 and #8, with a bogey on #13 being her only blemish.
Sophomore Erin Choi was even-par (71) for her final round to tie for 11th at +2 (74-70-71-215). Posting 14 pars, she made back-to-back birdies on the sixth and seventh before ending her round with bogeys on her last two holes.
Sophomore Lydia Choi was 1-over (72) on Tuesday to place in a tie for 20th for the tournament at +4 (74-71-72-217). Choi made four birdies on the seventh, 12th, 15th and 18th to go with five bogeys.
