Cristina Baena birdied the second playoff hole to beat teammate Jenna Daniels for individual honors, but their 3-under-par 69s propelled Arizona to a two-stroke victory in the Donnis Thompson Rainbow Wahine Golf Invitational yesterday at the Olomana Golf Links.

The Wildcats, the No. 1 team in women's collegiate golf, overcame a seven-stroke deficit against Pepperdine to successfully defend its tournament championship.

Arizona wound up with a three-day score of 883, while Pepperdine was next at 885. Southern California was third at 897.

Baena, a sophomore from Colombia, and Daniels, a senior ranked as the top women's golfer, finished with a 54-hole score of 213. Pepperdine's Lindsey Wright, a freshman from Australia who was the second-round leader, wound up with a 74 for a 217 total.

USC's Mikaela Parmlid, who led the first round with a 70, was fourth at 221 after a final-round 75. At 224 was Oklahoma State's Maria Boden of Sweden.

Host Hawaii finished in a tie for sixth with Oklahoma at 941 as Kathy Cho and Melissa Shintani finished at 232 in 20th place along with Desi Ting, who played for the second UH team entered by coach Marga Stubblefield.
