Following a first and second place finish in the first two tournaments of the fall, the University of Arizona women's golf team is ranked No. 2 in the country, according to the latest edition of the MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings. The Wildcats were ranked second in the first poll of the year as well, while Duke remains No. 1 in the country.
Individually, Arizona senior Jenna Daniels is ranked second, trailing only Arizona State's Miriam Nagl, who is No.1. In the first two tournaments of the season, Daniels tied for third at the NCAA Preview and was the runner-up at the Dick McGuire Invitational. Arizona has two other golfers ranked among the top-25, as sophomore Cristina Baena is No. 11 and senior Jill Gomric is No. 18.
The University of Arizona men's golf team is ranked No. 21 in the MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings. This comes on the heels of a second place finish in the fall's first tournament The Ridges Intercollegiate -- and an eighth place performance at last week's W.H. Tucker Intercollegiate. Arizona began the season unranked and there were no UA individuals included in the top-25.
The Arizona women return to action on Oct. 23-25, at the Stanford/Pepsi Invitational, while the men play on Oct. 11-12, at the Red River Classic in Dallas, Texas.
