A three-time All-American and All-Pac-10 selection, Marisa Baena led the women's golf team to several No. 1 rankings, two Pac-10 championships, two NCAA West Regional championships and most importantly, the program's first-ever NCAA Championship. On May 25, 1996, Marisa completed one of the most impressive sweeps in Arizona golf history. After already capturing the Pac-10 and NCAA West Regional individual titles, Marisa put the finishing touches on a rare postseason hat trick by winning the NCAA individual title. She finished the championships with a score of 296, seven strokes ahead of the second-place finisher.
