Women's golf concludes season with 17th-place finish at NCAA Championships
The 10th-ranked Arizona State women’s golf team finish in 17th place at the 2011 NCAA Women’s Golf Championship in College Station, Texas. The Sun Devils shot a 58-over 1210 over the four-round Championship.
Leading the way for the Sun Devils was junior All-American Carlota Ciganda, who finished the tournament in a tie for 37th after shooting an 11-over 299 (72-73-78-76).
The Texas residents were happy to see the rainy conditions, as it had not rained in the area since September. However, for those golfing over the four-day tournament, the mixture of rain and wind hampered the quality play many had come to recognize from the championship field, with only five golfers recording scores under par.
With it’s third-place finish at the East Regional, Arizona State set a new NCAA record for consecutive Championship appearances with 20. On the season the Sun Devils won three tournaments, most notably the Hawaii-hosted Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational in which the Sun Devils took tournament honors with a 15-stroke victory over Arizona. Ciganda also added two individual victories to her resume with wins at the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational and the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge.
