Women's golf earns No. 4 seed in NCAA East Regional


April 26, 2011

The 10th-ranked Arizona State women's golf team was selected as the No. 4 seed in the East Region, the NCAA announced today. The Sun Devils will compete against 24 teams at the LPGA International Golf Course, May 5-7, in Daytona Beach, Fla.

ASU will be joined by Alabama, who received the No. 1 seed in the East Region, Purdue and California, among others. The top eight teams and two individuals from each region will advance to the NCAA Championships, May 18-21, at the Traditions Golf Club hosted by Texas A&M University.

Junior Carlota Ciganda, known for her post-season success, will look to continue the trend heading into Regionals. The first ever back-to-back Pac-10 Champion fell just three strokes short of winning an unprecedented third conference title at the Pac-10 Championships held at the ASU Karsten Golf Course, April 17-19. In addition to her conference championships, Ciganda also won individualist honors at the 2009 West Regional. The junior has finished in the top-15 in six of the seven post-season events in which she has competed.
