She's only a freshman in college, but Levittown native Annie Park can play with the best of them. 

Park won the NCAA Women's Individual Title last week in convincing fashion, finishing 10 strokes under par and helping the No. 1 ranked USC Trojans women's golf team win the NCAA National Championship.

Park, who was an early graduate of MacArthur High School, came to USC ranked as the No. 18 junior in the country by AJGA and played as an amateur in the 2012 U.S. Women's Open, according to USC Athletics.

Park is just the seventh freshman in history to win an NCAA individual title. She was also named 2013 WGCA Player and Freshman of the Year at the championship banquet later that evening.

"The result was very unexpected for myself," Park commented on the USC website. "I was just trying to play my best each round and each shot. It turned out to be good and it feels great."

USC placed all five players in the top 17 and finished at 19-under 1133 (284-276-285-288), which breaks the previous NCAA Championship record for most strokes under par, which was previously four (UCLA in 2004).
