DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Two-time defending champion Duke took
a seven-stroke lead Wednesday after the second round of the NCAA
women's tournament, while Purdue's Christel Boeljon shot a 3-under
69 in windy conditions to top the individual leaderboard.

Anna Grzebien had a 70 to help the Blue Devils, seeking their
fifth team title in nine years, shoot a 1-over 287 for an 11-over
587 total on LPGA International's Legends Course. UCLA was second
at 18 over, followed by Purdue (21 over), Stanford (23 over) and
Southern California (25 over).

Grzebien, the 2005 individual champion, rebounded from an
opening 80.

"Yesterday fired me up," Grzebien said. "This is the
tournament where you need to come and play because everyone is
prepared to win it."

Boeljon, a sophomore from the Netherlands, had a 3-under 141
total. Arkansas' Stacy Lewis (71) was a stroke back, and Duke's
Amanda Blumenherst (73) was 1 under along with UCLA's Tiffany Joh
(70) and TCU's Catherine Matranga (71).

"I played solid today," Boeljon said. "I hit a lot of
fairways and found a lot of greens. I think I only missed two
greens. I felt comfortable about my game and just went shot by
