Bradenton, Fla. - The University of Maryland women's golf team fired a tournament-low 308 in today's second round to win the 2005 Spider Spring Invitational, played at The Legacy Golf Club at Lakewood Ranch on Monday and Tuesday. The Terrapins, who carded a tournament-best 22 birdies, shot a 627 (319-308) at the event.

Krista Swanson, a sophomore from runner-up Montana, captured the individual medal with a 152 (77-75) at the par-72 course. She finished one stroke better than first-round leader Katie Stepanek (72-81) and Kelly Calkin (81-72), both from Maryland. Stepanek, who led the field with seven birdies, and Calkin both carded the lowest round of the tournament with an even-par 72.
