Charlottesvile, VA – After a second-place finish at North Carolina’s Lady Tar Heel Invitational, the Virginia women’s golf team moved up three spots to sixth in this week’s Golfweek rankings. It is the highest ranking in the program’s four-year history. Georgia remains the top team in the nation.
Cavalier senior Leah Wigger jumped to eighth in the individual standings after finishing fourth at North Carolina. Earlier this season Wigger was second at the Fall Preview, considered the top fall tournament of the season. Wigger, a second-team All-American in 2006, leads UVa with a 72.55 stroke average.
Virginia sophomore Jennie Arseneault cracked the top-20 for the first time in her career, coming in 17th in this week’s rankings. Arseneault has recorded back-to-back top-10 finishes in UVa’s last two outings. She is second on the team with a 73.00 stroke average.
The Cavaliers return to action Oct. 27-29 when they compete at The Landfall Tradition in their final fall event of the season.
