Razorbacks in the top 10

FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas women’s golf team cracked the top 10 at No. 10 in this week’s Golf World/National Golf Coaches Association Coaches Poll it was announced today.

The Razorbacks were the only new team jumping into the top 10 thanks to a win at the LSU Golf Classic and top five finishes at the MountainView Invitational and the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic.

The poll voting closed prior to Arkansas’ fourth-placing showing at the 2011 Southeastern Conference Championship last weekend.

"It is great to be recognized by our peers as a top team in women’s collegiate golf," Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor said. "Our team has worked so hard on and off the golf course this year that this is much deserved. I am very proud of their efforts, but we must remain focused as we head into the remaining two events of our season."

Arkansas picked up 357 points moving up from No. 11 in the previous poll. UCLA moved into the top spot for the first time this season jumping over previous No. 1 USC. SEC members No. 3 Alabama, No. 7 LSU, No. 12 Tennessee No. 13 Georgia, No. 17 Auburn, No. 19 Vanderbilt and No. 20 Florida are also ranked with South Carolina getting votes this polling period.

The Razorbacks moved up one spot from No. 12 to No. 11 in this week’s Golfstat.com poll.

The Razorbacks await word of an NCAA Regional selection to one of three sites next week.
