McCloskey headed to USC; Wallace to Colorado

While losing All-Americans Belen Mozo to graduation and Jennifer Song to the professional ranks, the NCAA runner-up USC women's team will be adding a fairly significant replacement in the form of Lisa McCloskey next fall. The 19-year-old who just finished her sophomore year at Pepperdine, is set to transfer and will play for the Trojans starting in the 2010-11 season.

McCloskey had an eventful two seasons with the Waves. As a freshman, she set the NCAA 54-hole scoring mark with a 17-under 199 at the Las Vegas Collegiate Shootout. Later that season, she had emergency appendectomy.

Pepperdine will also be losing Jessica Wallace. The rising junior from Langley, British Columbia, is transferring to Colorado and play for the Buffaloes this fall.
