What to look at: If there’s any staff that may stack up towards Stanford, it’s Wake Forest, which topped the Cardinal by six photographs within the 54-hole stroke-play portion of the Stephens Cup earlier than Stanford returned the favor within the championship match, 4-1. Stanford, although, is only one hurdle for the Demon Deacons in the case of the NCAA Championship; Wake has missed the 54-hole minimize at Grayhawk every of the previous two seasons. The Demon Deacons gained 3 times in whole in the course of the fall whereas including a pair of runner-up finishes. Senior Rachel Kuehn gained the person title at Seminole and wasn’t worse than T-12 in 5 begins, although Wake put three golfers on the autumn’s remaining Annika Award watch record for a motive – sophomore Carolina Chacarra and senior Lauren Walsh every had two top-4s, as did graduate pupil Emilia Migliaccio. Don’t be shocked both if freshman Anne-Sterre den Dunnen supplants Mimi Rhodes (only one fall top-30) because the No. 5 earlier than the spring is over. … Florida State has needed to exchange All-Individuals corresponding to Frida Kinhult and Beatrice Wallin over the previous couple of years, so making up for the lack of Jacqui Putrino, who transferred to Oklahoma State after taking part in three tournaments for the Seminoles within the fall, shouldn’t be an enormous deal. Sophomore Kaylah Williams is probably going first up to take action, however Florida State can afford itself a while to determine issues out as its prime 4 is pretty much as good as anybody within the nation not named Stanford or Wake Forest. Freshman Lottie Woad gained as soon as and by no means completed outdoors the highest 10 in 4 fall begins whereas seniors Charlotte Heath and Amelia Williamson, and junior Alice Hodge have loads of postseason expertise. Whereas the Seminoles nonetheless don’t have an ACC title to their credit score, they’ve completed runner-up every of the previous 5 seasons. … Virginia was two rounds away from opening the autumn with wins on the Annika Intercollegiate and Mercedes-Benz Collegiate, however every time the Cavaliers coughed up 36-hole results in end third. Add a seventh on the Windy Metropolis Collegiate and sixth at Stanford’s house occasion and Virginia probably enters the spring with one thing to show. Having sophomore Amanda Sambach and junior Jennifer Cleary (one win, 5 mixed top-13s) atop the lineup ought to preserve the Cavaliers within the dialog for an ACC title if not an NCAA crown. … Duke performed the second hardest fall schedule within the nation, so a 3rd and three different top-5s isn’t horrible. Nevertheless, the Blue Devils entered the break with a bitter style of their mouths because of a 13th on the Landfall Custom, the place Duke completed 40 photographs again of winner San Jose State and didn’t place a single golfer within the prime 30. Junior Phoebe Brinker has in all probability dethroned senior Erica Shepherd as Duke’s No. 1, however an even bigger concern is the again finish of the lineup, the place sophomore Rylie Heflin had simply two of 15 rounds of par or higher and senior Megan Furtney averaged 80 in a single occasion. … Clemson didn’t construct off a runner-up on the Cougar Basic by not breaking the highest 5 in any of its remaining 4 fall tournaments.

What to look at: After successful 4 instances and by no means lacking a begin in 43 occasions, Michigan senior Ashley Lau determined to forego her remaining semester and enter Q-Sequence again in November. “I knew I needed to chase my dream,” Lau mentioned. Lau’s departure means the Wolverines should bounce again from a disappointing fall with out their prime participant. Michigan struggled to complete out tournaments within the fall, taking pictures over 300 in three completely different remaining rounds, whereas it positioned eighth or worse 3 times and nothing higher than T-5 in 5 occasions. That mentioned, the Wolverines are nonetheless in all probability the staff to beat within the Huge Ten, however that’s contingent on if senior Hailey Borja and junior Monet Chun step again up after combining for under three top-10s within the fall. Freshman Lauren Sung may have an even bigger function, too, with Lau gone. … If Michigan can’t overcome Lau turning professional, then Ohio State is finest poised to win the league. The Buckeyes acquired an enormous increase with Oklahoma State switch Caley McGinty eligible to compete this season. McGinty hasn’t had the kind of outcomes that she did for the Cowgirls and Kent State previous to that, however her 4 top-25s, together with a T-6 as Ohio State opened its fall with a win on the Dick McGuire Invitational, are an incredible complement to senior Aneka Seumanutafa and her three top-20s. Senior Lauren Peter added a team-best two top-10s. … Northwestern has superior to the NCAA Championship simply as soon as since ending runner-up to NCAA champion Arizona State in 2017, and even with the rise to 30 groups at nationals, the Wildcats have their work minimize out for them to finish that drought. Northwestern didn’t end higher than T-5 in 4 fall occasions, and their star, senior Kelly Sim, had hassle contending, too. Nevertheless, whereas Sim posted no top-10s, she did crack the highest 15 in each begin. If the Wildcats can get some consistency behind Sim, they will win the Huge Ten and probably sneak into Grayhawk after shedding a regional playoff final spring. … Michigan State is aware of what Michigan is feeling because the Spartans additionally misplaced their No. 1 to the professionals this winter; senior Valery Plata tied for third at Q-Sequence to earn full LPGA standing. Plata additionally left an enormous gap in Michigan State’s lineup. Junior Valentina Rossi and sophomore Brooke Biermann joined Plata with a sub-74 scoring common within the fall, however the Spartans had 4 gamers rotating out and in of that fifth spot, and none of them recorded a top-40 end. A final-place end at a troublesome Windy Metropolis occasion and now the lack of Plata in all probability means a second straight season ending at regionals. … Maryland completed sixth at Huge Tens and didn’t make a regional final season in Kelly Hovland’s first season as head coach. The Terps are a bit of higher this season, posting a pair runner-up finishes and having a legit one-two punch in junior Patricie Mackova and freshman Nicha Kanpai (No. 87 in Golfstat). … Since 2009, Nebraska has made only one NCAA regional (2021), however within the first 12 months beneath new head coach Jeanne Sutherland, the Huskers are in place so as to add a second. It wasn’t a troublesome schedule (76th hardest per the Sagarins), however at the least Nebraska constructed some confidence with a win and two seconds in 5 occasions. Whether or not that interprets to Fox Chapel in April, although, stays to be seen. … Purdue made a shock run to Grayhawk final spring and made it rely, ending 12th. The Boilermakers returned 5 gamers who logged at the least one spherical at nationals (4 now that Sifat Sigoo left the staff after the autumn), although their finest participant within the fall was sophomore Momo Sugiyama, a switch from Hawaii. Sugiyama wants some assist, and Purdue didn’t end higher than 10th as a staff in 4 fall occasions, however at the least this squad was examined by the 18th hardest fall slate within the nation. … Senior Crystal Wang had 4 top-8s and nothing worse than T-13 in 5 fall begins for Illinois.

Huge 12

Championship information: April 21-23, Dallas Athletic Membership, Dallas

What to look at: Texas misplaced some expertise from final 12 months’s staff, notably Sara Kouskova and Brigitte Thibault to commencement and Ashleigh Park to Oregon. However the Longhorns are arguably higher now. They posted runner-up finishes on the Annika and MoMorial and had a special participant top-7 in every of their 4 fall tournaments. Junior Bentley Cotton (No. 48 in Golfstat) paced Texas within the fall, however sophomore Bohyun Park, senior Sophie Guo and freshman Cindy Hsu are also ranked within the prime 100.

Texas is aiming for a fifth Huge 12 title in its final six tries and seventh straight journey to nationals. … Oklahoma State bounced again from a ninth at Illinois’ occasion to win its fall finale, the Jim West Problem, and it’s no coincidence that junior Rina Tatematsu notched her finest end of the autumn in that event, a T-11. The previous All-American is barely ranked within the prime 200 of Golfstat, and if Oklahoma State goes to make it to a 3rd straight NCAA Championship, it wants Tatematsu to play nicely alongside junior Maddison Hinson Tolchard, sophomore Clemence Martin and senior Han-Hsuan Yu, who mixed for 5 top-7s within the fall. … What a narrative this may be: Iowa State hasn’t performed an NCAA Championship since 2014, and it’s not completed higher than ninth at regionals in its final seven journeys. However greater than 5 years after alum Celia Barquin Arozamena was murdered whereas taking part in golf close to campus, the Cyclones are a top-25 program – and regardless of simply six gamers on their roster, they’re for actual. They performed the 26rd hardest fall schedule and capped the autumn with a formidable T-2 on the Stanford Intercollegiate, simply seven photographs again of the successful Cardinal. Freshman Karissa Chul-Ak-Sorn, considered one of three Thais on the roster, led the best way with three top-10s, together with a runner-up on the Schooner Fall Basic. … The protection blanket that was All-American Gurleen Kaur is gone, however Baylor has hung powerful – a pair top-5s in three fall occasions and 7 completely different gamers with top-10s, together with sophomore Sera Hasegawa, who had two to associate with eight of 9 rounds at par or higher. … It was an up-and-down fall for TCU, although the Horned Frogs completed robust with a runner-up on the Battle of Seaside, the place they beat Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Mississippi State amongst others. The opposite excellent news is the highest of the lineup is powerful – junior Lois Lau and sophomore Caitlyn Macnab mixed for eight top-14s whereas Macnab gained the Schooner to open the autumn.

Latest champions: Oregon (2022), USC (2021), USC (2019), UCLA (2018), UCLA (2017), USC (2016), Arizona (2015), Stanford (2014)

Midseason All-Convention Staff: Rose Zhang, Soph., Stanford (1); Zoe Campos, Soph., UCLA (9); Ashleigh Park, Jr., Oregon (10); Sadie Englemann, Jr., Stanford (20); Caroline Canales, Soph., UCLA (34)

What to look at: The Pac-12 might not be the deepest convention in girls’s faculty golf, however on the prime, there isn’t any higher league. It helps, in fact, that Stanford is an all-time staff. The Cardinal are the reigning NCAA champions and returned Annika Award winner and NCAA particular person champ Rose Zhang for a second season, they usually could also be higher than they have been a season in the past. Stanford gained 4 instances in as many fall begins, although many will level out that Wake Forest clipped them by seven photographs in 54 holes of stroke play on the Stephens Cup. That’s actually the one knock as Zhang has gained 3 times, junior Rachel Heck has been extra constant (T-3 at Seminole, nothing worse than T-22) and fellow junior Sadie Englemann has damaged out (4 top-13s) and earned herself a spot on the Annika watch record. One of many craziest stats within the sport is that Stanford hasn’t gained a Pac-12 title since 2014. However count on the Cardinal to tear up Papago this spring earlier than making a robust run at an NCAA repeat. … Give Oregon head coach Derek Radley credit score; after the Geese’ nationwide runner-up exhibiting and the next departures of two starters, one to commencement and one to the professionals early, Oregon has barely misplaced a beat. Its sixth on the Annika was its worst end, and it capped the autumn with back-to-back seconds, together with on the Pac-12 Preview with out No. 1 participant Cynthia Lu. Lu flirted with Q-Sequence final November earlier than deciding to return to high school. She had three top-12s in as many fall begins, however the huge story final semester was Texas switch Ashleigh Park, who had 4 top-12s, together with two runner-up showings. Steadiness is once more a power (4 gamers in Golfstat’s prime 81), although senior Ching-Tzu Chen (No. 149) probably wants to enhance this spring if the Geese wish to give Stanford a run once more at Grayhawk. … After a down 12 months following the midseason departures of All-America sisters Yu-Sang Hou and Vivian Hou, Arizona is true again among the many nation’s elite. Throw out a poor remaining spherical on the Windy Metropolis, the place the Wildcats dropped from T-4 to T-9, they usually have been third or higher 4 instances. Except for senior Gile Chunk Starkute (three top-10s), it is a younger staff with largely sophomores and freshmen, although it’s one with maybe extra potential than most. Sophomore Lilas Pinthier and Carolina Melgrati every had three top-20s within the fall with Pinthier’s all being T-12 or higher. … Taking part in a top-10 schedule, Arizona State had a pair fourths (Windy Metropolis, Pac-12 Preview) after which two finishes of eighth or worse (Annika, Stanford). Junior Ashley Menne (No. 71 in Golfstat) capped her fall with a T-4 on the Pac-12 Preview, her third top-20 of the autumn however the Solar Devils have struggled to discover a No. 5, particularly with freshman Paula Schulz-Hanssen not cracking the highest 30 in three tries. Surprisingly, this 12 months’s Pac-12 Championship host hasn’t gained a convention title since 2009. … Don’t count on USC to remain ranked outdoors the highest 20 for lengthy. Whereas the Trojans have been fifth or worse 4 instances within the fall, in addition they confirmed their ceiling with a win on the Windy Metropolis, the place sophomore Amari Avery gained individually. Additionally, simply 5 groups beat extra top-25 faculties than USC did within the fall. Avery solely had one different top-10 whereas sophomore Cindy Kou and senior Brianna Navarrosa had one top-10 apiece. All three are prone to outperform this spring, and there are a bunch of untamed playing cards on the roster, too – senior Malia Nam, freshman Joyce Jin and UCLA switch Ty Akabane, if she will be able to get her waiver to compete this spring authorised by the NCAA. … Even with Akabane transferring, UCLA can nonetheless subject a harmful beginning 5, led by sophomore Zoe Campos, who discovered the shape that made her an elite junior participant with top-6s in each fall stroke-play begins. Sophomore Caroline Canales had a pair of top-4s, and fellow sophomore Alessia Nobilio was good, simply not nice – one top-10s amongst three top-21s. If Nobilio is healthier and senior Annabel Wilson (three finishes outdoors the highest 20, two of them T-45 or worse) can proper the ship, UCLA is usually a top-10 staff.

Championship information: April 12-16, Greystone Golf Membership, Birmingham, Alabama

Latest champions: LSU (2022), Auburn (2021), Ole Miss (2019), Arkansas (2018), Florida (2017), Alabama (2016), Texas A&M (2015), Vanderbilt (2014)

Staff rankings: South Carolina (4), Texas A&M (6), Ole Miss (8), LSU (9), Mississippi State (11), Auburn (14), Vanderbilt (19), Arkansas (25), Florida (26), Kentucky (31), Tennessee (38), Georgia (40), Alabama (41), Missouri (91)

Midseason All-Convention Staff: Andrea Lignell, Sr., Ole Miss (2); Hannah Darling, Soph., South Carolina (3); Ingrid Lindblad, Sr., LSU (4); Jenny Bae, Sr., Georgia (5); Julia Lopez Ramirez, Soph., Mississippi State (11)

What to look at: The hardest fall schedule was performed by … South Carolina. So, despite the fact that the Gamecocks didn’t win, not ending worse than fourth would possibly as nicely rely as a pair wins. Sophomore Hannah Darling must be a first-team All-American once more this season after piling up 4 top-6 finishes within the fall. Senior Mathilde Claisse added a pair of top-10s whereas senior Justine Fournand and sophomore Louise Rydqvist joined her within the prime 75 of Golfstat. If USC switch Katherine Muzi (no top-20s in 4 occasions) can rein issues in, South Carolina not solely has the chops to win the SEC for the primary time since 2002, but additionally make NCAA match play for the primary time and, together with Wake, give Stanford one thing to consider. … That mentioned, the SEC is anyone’s sport due to match play. And Texas A&M has some good expertise beneath their belts after advancing to the NCAA semifinals final spring in head coach Gerrod Chadwell’s first season. Plus, the Aggies are actually good, successful twice and including a runner-up within the fall. Junior Jennie Park led the staff with three top-10s and he or she additionally was second on the Mexican Beginner this winter. Senior Hailee Cooper’s 72.8 scoring common was second behind Park (71.6) as she had a pair top-10s. Sophomore Blanca Fernandez Garcia-Poggio, although sixth on the staff in scoring, gained the East Lake Cup title and added some power within the offseason. And junior Zoe Slaughter might be higher than all three this spring as she is coming off 4 top-15s within the fall and has proven up this semester a a lot better putter and wedge participant. … After a busy 12 months, Ole Miss is again, and a variety of it has to do with senior Andrea Lignell, who went first-second-first-third within the fall. The Rebels, as a staff, mirrored these outcomes. The stability of senior Chiara Tamburlini (three top-10s) and a more healthy Ellen Hume (two top-13s) have Ole Miss in nice place to win a bunch this spring. A extra constant No. 5 wouldn’t harm, although. … LSU senior Ingrid Lindblad’s profession numbers are eye-popping – 10 wins and 27 top-10s in 33 occasions; 70.33 scoring common, together with a 68.78 to date this season. The Tigers know what they’ve atop the lineup, and if it weren’t for Rose Zhang, Lindblad can be talked about much more. However she will be able to’t do it alone. Throw out a straightforward fall opener at Tulane, the place the Tigers gained with Lindblad resting, and Lindblad’s LSU teammates mixed for simply two top-10s. Seniors Latanna Stone and Carla Tejedo must be tremendous, however head coach Garrett Runion has as many as seven choices for the ultimate two lineup spots and has gotten little manufacturing to date. LSU might have two wins to its credit score, but it surely additionally has overwhelmed simply 18 top-50 applications up to now; for comparability, Wake Forest has 44. If the Tigers wish to do higher than ninth and 11th the previous two years at Grayhawk, they want higher play on the again finish. … Head coach Charlie Ewing is constructing one thing particular at Mississippi State, which obtained again to nationals final season for the primary time since 2014. 4 gamers are nonetheless right here from that lineup, together with sophomore Julia Lopez Ramirez, who gained the Blessings occasion amongst her 4 top-5s. Ewing has additionally been impressed by the freshmen, Izzy Pelot (two T-11’s) and Surapa Janthamunee (72.6 scoring common in two occasions, second on staff). Six gamers on the roster had at the least one top-15. … After inserting 10th on the Annika, Auburn obtained a bit of higher every outing earlier than successful the East Lake Cup with a 5-0 drubbing of Texas A&M. Senior Megan Schofill was the one Tiger to notch a top-10 within the fall, although she had two of them, together with a win on the Mason Rudolph. Different groups are in all probability deeper – Auburn doesn’t have one other top-100 participant – however as evidenced by their postseason comebacks in recent times, few rosters have the grit that this group of Tigers have. … Behind senior Celina Sattelkau and freshmen Lynn Lim and Tillie Claggett (4 top-5s whole), Vanderbilt gained as soon as and positioned third twice extra after a last-place end on the eight-team Carmel Cup to kick off the autumn. Not that it was the toughest schedule (49th per the Sagarins). … Talking of schedules, Arkansas had the third hardest, so two sevenths, a fifth and a 3rd wasn’t too shabby. We knew this staff would have some good depth, however we didn’t know that junior Miriam Ayora (No. 49 in Golfstat) would prepared the ground with three top-13s, greater than she had in her first two seasons mixed. You can additionally argue that the Razorbacks can get quite a bit higher; senior Kajal Mistry had only one top-20 within the fall after seven final season, and junior Cory Lopez is lastly taking part in once more after lacking eight months as a consequence of damage. … In what seems like a sitcom, Fuller and Filler (Annabell and Maisie) have been the standouts for Florida within the fall as every posted sub-73 scoring averages and three top-25s in what was a top-10 schedule when it comes to issue. Nonetheless, the Gators are probably dissatisfied with how they completed the autumn – 12th at Windy Metropolis, T-13 at Stanford. It’s been 4 years since Florida final made it to nationals. … Kentucky was a well-liked darkish horse coming into the autumn, so its present rating (No. 31) could also be a bit of underwhelming, particularly contemplating the Wildcats gained twice, each wins towards robust fields on the Illini and Tar Heel. Senior Jensen Fortress and junior Laney Frye, every prime 50 in Golfstat, had good falls with 5 mixed top-10s, together with Fortress’s win on the Tar Heel. Don’t rely out Kentucky to win the SEC. … After attending to match play final spring at Grayhawk and giving Stanford a battle, Georgia was higher than ninth simply as soon as final fall. The Bulldogs have at all times been extra of an April/Could staff, however nonetheless; contemplating senior Jenny Bae, who determined to stay in class as a substitute of taking part in Q-Sequence, is ranked fifth in Golfstat with 4 top-10s, the remainder of the Georgia squad has a variety of work to do. Except for Bae, there was one top-25 end by a Bulldog within the fall.

What to look at: San Jose State made a shock run to the NCAA quarterfinals final season, however after shedding Inkster Award winner Natasha Andrea Oon to commencement, the massive query was if head coach Dana Dormann and her squad may maintain. Up to now, they’ve accomplished greater than that, ending the autumn ranked third within the nation. Seniors Antonia Malate and Kajsa Arwefjall mixed for 5 top-10s in 4 occasions whereas junior Louisa Carlbom joined Arwefjall in successful individually. Malate later gained the Patriot All-America this winter, and the Spartans will add New Zealand’s Darae Chung, who at one level was ranked No. 251 in WAGR, this spring. … SMU’s 2022 recruiting class, Mackenzie Lee and Michelle Zhang, have hit the bottom sprinting – Lee has 4 top-10s in 5 begins, Zhang two; neither have completed worse than T-23 – and the Mustangs, looking for their first NCAA berth since 1992, gained as soon as and completed second 3 times within the fall. … Kent State failed to succeed in nationals final season for the primary time since 2016, however behind senior Mayka Hoogeboom, who gained twice individually within the fall, the Golden Flashes are a good guess to get again to Grayhawk. … Like SMU, Houston has two stud freshmen, and Natalie Saint Germain and Moa Svedenskiold, who every posted three fall top-10s. Nevertheless, the priority is that no different Cougars participant notched a top-15, so there’s room for the again finish of that lineup to step up. … UCF has battled some consistency points to date this season, however senior Tunrada Piddon has been immune as she gained the Mercedes-Benz Intercollegiate to associate with two extra top-10s in 4 fall begins. The Knights are flushed with expertise, nevertheless, so the upside is there for a pleasant spring leap up the rankings.
