Interesting Notes: The Oro Valley Country Club hosted the first-ever women’s golf Pac-10 Championships 20 years ago, in 1987. Members of the Oro Valley Country Club have opened their homes to play host to many of the visiting schools, as well as planning social events for the teams.
Allen’s thoughts on the Pac-10 Championships: “I think anytime you depend so heavily on the freshmen, like we’ve done this season, you are going to have ups and downs throughout the season. Losing Lani (Elston-Marshall) at Christmas hurt us because we lost some senior leadership, but in adding Adriana (Zwanck), we gained a player that has won two out of her first five tournaments. I am pleased about the way the freshmen have progressed throughout the season and I look for great things out of our team at the Pac-10 Championships. Getting the opportunity to play at the Oro Valley Country Club in our hometown is exciting and will hopefully provide us an advantage. For us to be successful, however, we need a team effort and need all five players to play well at the same time. If we play to our potential, then we will have a chance to come away with a victory.”
The Competition: The Pac-10 women’s golf teams all rank in the top 20 in the West Region according to the Golfweek/Sagarin Women’s District Rankings. The top three spots are occupied by members of the Pac-10 and seven teams rank in the top 10. The Pac-10 conference has more individuals in the top 20, eight, than any other conference.
