Wildcats jump out to lead at Pac-10 Golf Championships
The Arizona women's golf team finds itself with a commanding lead after the first round of the 12th annual Pacific 10 Conference Women's Golf Championships held at the Tijeras Creek Golf Club in Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. UA fired a two-over par 290, which was six shots better than second place Arizona State.
Host Southern Cal is in third place 12 shots back, followed by Washington who is 13 shots back and Oregon, who is 19 shots back. The third ranked Wildcats are the defending Pac-10 champion and are seeking to win their third tournament of the season (Rolex NCAA Preview & Rolex Match Play).
In the individual competition, all five Wildcat golfers placed in the top five. The women played extremely well on a day that saw only one sub-par score. That score belonged to Wildcat sophomore Jenna Daniels. Daniels fired a three-under par 69 and set a new women's record at the Tijeras Creek Golf Club. Daniels is stepping up her level of play at the right time of the season.
Sophomore Jill Gomric resides alone in fourth place, four shots back of the lead at one-over par 73.
Senior Heather Graff and juniors Marisa Baena and Krissie Register are all tied for fifth place, five shots back of the lead, at two-over par 74.
