Tucson, Ariz. In a vote by league head coaches, University of Arizona head women's golf coach Todd McCorkle was named the Pacific-10 Conference Women's Golf Coach of the Year today. He won the award for the first time during his two-year UA head coaching career after leading the Wildcats to this year's Pac-10 Championship. The UA has been ranked No. 1 in the country for the past 10 weeks in a row and has won a school record six consecutive golf tournaments.

Three Wildcats were named to the six-woman All-Pac-10 First Team, including seniors Jenna Daniels and Jill Gomric and sophomore Cristina Baena. Two UA golfers were named to the All-Pac-10 honorable mention team, junior Christina Monteiro and freshman Julia Kraschinski.
