Women's golf ranked No. 1 by Golfweek

September 08, 2009

The Arizona State University women's golf team has been ranked No. 1 by the publication Golfweek. The Sun Devils return three starters from their NCAA Championship run and are bringing in five talented freshmen.

In addition to the team rankings, the Sun Devils also have several listed in the individual rankings. Returning Pac-10 and NCAA West Regional Champion, Carlota Ciganda, comes back for her sophomore year and is listed at No. 2 in the preseason after receiving first-team All-American honors last season.

Juliana Murcia is listed on the second-team preseason rankings. Murcia, who earned her first medalist honors last season at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge, earned second-team All-American honors from the NGCA last season and was a first-team Pac-10 selection.

Two Sun Devils are listed on Golfweek's Preseason Third Team. Freshman Jennifer Johnson and junior Jaclyn Sweeney round out the Sun Devils selected on Golfweek's list. Johnson, who was a finalist at the U.S. Amateur this summer, was also listed as the No. 2 freshmen in the preseason rankings. Coming off an 11th place finish at NCAAs, Sweeney looks to regain All-American status in junior year.
