Stanford Ranked 13th in Golfweek's Preseason Poll

Sept. 10, 2009

STANFORD, Calif. - Caroline O'Connor's women's golf team is ranked 13th nationally in Golfweek's preseason collegiate poll which was released earlier this week.

Three Pac-10 teams - Arizona State, USC and UCLA - held down the top three spots in Golfweek's preseason poll.

O'Connor's strong recruiting class, headed up by freshmen Sally Watson and Kristina Wong, was also recognized by Golfweek. The magazine listed Watson, a native Earlsferry, Scotland, on its third team of top individuals, placing her among the top-30 players in the country heading into the season.

Watson, along with Wong, was listed among the top-10 freshmen in the country. Both players participated in the Junior Solheim Cup in August.

Stanford welcomes back five players off last year's roster, including senior Angela King, juniors Rebecca Durham and Piper Miller, and sophomores Sydney Burlison and Lila Barton.

Stanford opens the fall campaign at the Mason Rudolph Women's Championships hosted by Vanderbilt University on Sept. 25-27.
