The Women’s Golf Coaches Association has released its first Mizuno WGCA Coaches Poll for 2022 and the top-ranked team in Div. I women’s golf should surprise no one.

In fact, Stanford checks in as the unanimous No. 1 team. Oklahoma State is No. 2, with Oregon, Wake Forest and South Carolina rounding out the top five.

The Cardinal received 550 total points and all 23 first-place votes. Stanford has been dominant so far in the 2021-22 season, with four team wins in its first four outings before a second-place finish in the Lamkin Invitational two weeks ago. In addition, the Cardinal have already had four individual medalist victories this season, with sophomore Rachel Heck claiming top honors at the Lamkin and freshman Rose Zhang winning three times in the fall.

Heck now has seven victories, two shy of the school record held by Andrea Lee.
