TUCSON, Ariz.-Arizona women's golfers Lorena Ochoa and Laura Myerscough have been named to the 2002 All-Pacific-10 Conference first and second teams, respectively.

Ochoa, a 5-foot-7-inch sophomore from Guadalajara, Mexico, finished second at the Pac-10 Conference Championships earlier this week. The second-place finish marked the end of a streak of seven consecutive wins for Ochoa. During a span that stretched almost eight months, Ochoa claimed medalist honors seven times and shot par or better in 17 of the 20 rounds she played. Ochoa, the nation's top-rated golfer has a stroke average of 70.00 this season.

Myerscough, a 5-foot-7-inch junior from Charleston, Ill., capped her conference season with a career-best performance at the Pac-10 Championships when she tied for fourth at 3-over-par 219. Both the fourth-place finish and her score of 219 marked career bests for Myerscough. She has garnered seven top-25 finishes this season, including three top-10 finishes. Myerscough, a mark of consistency in the Wildcats' lineup, owns a stroke average of 75.50.

The first-team honor is the second such career accolade for Ochoa, who last year was also named Pac-10 Conference Freshman of the Year. Myerscough was lauded as an honorable mention on the all-conference team last season.

Ochoa and Myerscough next lead Arizona in competition when the team travels to Palo Alto, Calif., for the NCAA West Regional on May 9-11. Arizona will look to match its performance from last year when the team took first place at the NCAA West Regional in Corvallis, Ore.
