LSU Women's Golf Team Ranked No. 5 In WGCA Coaches Poll

BATON ROUGE – As the LSU women’s golf team returns to campus after spring break to prepare for its regular season finale, the latest Mizuno Women’s Golf Coaches Association Division I poll has moved the Tigers Friday up five spots to No. 5.

LSU is one of six Southeastern Conference teams in the top 12 in the March poll.

The ranking puts LSU at No. 5 in both of the major college golf polls as LSU was also No. 5 Wednesday in the Scoreboard by Clippd NCAA national performance ranking service.

LSU has a win and a second place in its three spring tournaments and will conclude the regular season March 22-24 at Sunset, South Carolina for the Clemson Invitational.

Stanford is No. 1, receiving 15 of the 19 available first-place votes with Wake Forest (3) in second and UCLA (1) in third. South Carolina is fourth, followed by LSU in fifth.

The other SEC teams in the top 12 are Arkansas in sixth, Auburn 10th, Florida 11th and Ole Miss 12.

Also in the top 25, Texas A&M is 17th and Vanderbilt is No. 22.

After the Clemson event, the Tigers will join the other 13 teams in the league at the SEC Championships at a new location, Pelican Golf Club in Belleair, Florida, starting April 12.
