TULSA, Okla. (May 22, 2014) -- Celine Boutier shot a third-round 67 to lead Duke in Round 3 of the 2014 NCAA Women's Golf Championship at Tulsa Country Club.

Her efforts powered the Blue Devils into sole possession of first place entering Friday's final round.

Duke and second place Southern California matched cards on Thursday and both teams hopped overnight leader Oklahoma, which stumbled on moving day.

USC took a 68 from Doris Chen and a 67 from Kyung Kim Thursday as the Trojans went low and moved into solo possession of second place.

Oklahoma, which led after Rounds 1 and 2, couldn't keep the momentum or the lead. Alexandra Kaui shot 80 to fall out of the medalist race.

Duke's Celine Boutier is tied with USC's Doris Chen in the individual race. Boutier (70-70-67) played well to surge the Blue Devils and herself into the lead. Chen has shot 67-72-68 over the event's first three rounds.
