TUCSON, Ariz. ?- In a listing of the top programs in women’s college golf, the University of Arizona ranks second, according to the Golfweek/Sagarin all-time women’s golf rankings. 

 

Out of 229 Division I teams, only Duke ranked higher than Arizona.  Auburn, USC and UCLA round out the top five places. 

 

The ranking’s top 50 includes eight teams from the Pac-10, six Big Ten schools, nine Big 12 and 10 SEC programs.  The Golfweek/Sagarin all-time rankings are based on performance since the start of the 1999-2000 season.

 

In that span, Arizona has been ranked No. 1 three times in either the golfweek.com, NGCA, Golf World polls or the Rolex national rankings. Additionally, Arizona has defeated top-ranked Duke eight times in the last six years.

 

“We are very pleased with the rankings,” head coach Greg Allen said.  “It’s a testament to the extraordinary women that have played here over the years and we hope to continue the success.”

 

Over the last six seasons nine Arizona golfers have earned All-American honors.  Since then, players like Jenna Daniels, Natalie Gulbis, Lorena Ochoa, Laura Myerscough and Erica Blasberg have each successfully moved to the LPGA tour.
