After a record-setting weekend, the Alabama women’s golf team is ranked No. 1 in the first Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) Coaches Poll of the 2018-19 regular season, the organization announced Monday.
The Crimson Tide received 12 first-place votes and 535 total points to secure the top spot following its 45-under par performance at the Schooner Fall Classic over the weekend, which set an NCAA scoring record.
UCLA (525), which tallied eight first-place votes, is second. Vanderbilt is third with 463 points and one first-place vote. Southern Cal (455) is fourth and Florida (450), which received the final first-place vote, is fifth.
Four other SEC schools appear in this week’s rankings: No. 7 Arkansas, No. 17 South Carolina, No. 18 Georgia and No. 20 Auburn.
Alabama will return to action Oct. 19-21 at the Betsy Rawls Longhorn Invitational in Austin, Texas.
