The UA women's golf team will attempt to capture its third consecutive Pacific 10 Conference title this weekend at Stanford, Calif. The No. 3-ranked Wildcats will battle with teams from one of the nation's strongest conferences, which includes No. 5 Southern Cal and No. 6 Arizona State.

UA junior Jenna Daniels, ranked No. 5 in the MasterCard Individual Collegiate Rankings, will defend her Pac-10 individual title and look to become the first back-to-back champion since the league first endorsed the tournament in 1987. In Daniels' past 17 golf tournaments, she has placed in the top 10 15 times.

Although she has carded impressive scores throughout this year, Daniels has been focused on this year's Pac-10s since the start of the season.

"The Pac-10s have always been our goal," she said. "We need to come together and play as a team just like we've been doing and really show what we're made of."

Arizona's lineup for this weekend's action will consist of four of the nation's top 20 female golfers, including No. 17 freshman Cristina Baena. Baena hopes that Pac-10 success is in her genes, since her sister Marisa led the Wildcats to their second Pac-10 Championship back in 1997.

The Wildcats will hit the links this morning beginning at 8:30 and continue play until Sunday afternoon.
