Stanford junior golfer Andrea Lee fired a bogey-free, final-round 3-under-par 70 to tie for third on Wednesday in the Nanea Pac-12 Preview at Nanea Golf Club.

Lee, the defending champion, made a strong push to repeat by shooting a 3-under 33 on the back nine. She finished at 4-under 215, two strokes behind co-champions Yu-Sang Hou of Arizona and Tze-Han Lin of Oregon.

In three stroke play starts this fall, Lee tied for third at the East Lake Cup and finished fifth at the Annika Intercollegiate. She is a combined 13-under and has broken par in six of seven rounds, shooting even in the other.

In 27 career tournaments for Stanford, Lee has six victories, 23 top-10's and 18 top-5s. She is tied for second in program wins with Kathleen McCarthy and is two behind all-time leader Mhairi McKay (1994-97).

Teeing it up for the last time in the fall season, the second-ranked Cardinal placed sixth in the 12-team field. Stanford combined for a 4-over 296 score on Wednesday to wind up at 3-over 879.

Arizona captured the team crown with a 54-hole total of 2-under 874.

Junior Albane Valenzuela (75) capped a strong fall by tying for 12th at even-par 219. She secured her second career win at the East Lake Cup last week and finished third at the Stanford Intercollegiate. Valenzuela was a combined 11-under and shot par or better in six of seven rounds, besting par five times.

Freshman Aline Krauter (75) shared 22nd at 2-over 221, while junior Ziyi Wang (75) tied for 28th at 5-over 224 and sophomore Kelsey Zeng (79) tied for 47th at 12-over 231.

Stanford resumes competition on Feb. 3-5 at the Northrop Gruman Regional Challenge in Palos Verdes.
