Ringler’s ringers (Women)

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Here are my picks for the upcoming women’s season:

No. 1 team: USC. What the Trojans were able to accomplish last season after losing a pair of All-Americans was impressive. With three top-10 players (Jennifer Song, Lizette Salas and Belen Mozo) returning this year, USC needs only a little help from the bottomof the lineup to dominate.

No. 1 player: Jennifer Song, USC. After being No. 1 as a freshman, then winning the U.S. Women’s Public Links and Women’s Amateur titles, it’s hard not to select Song.

Keep an eye on: LSU (team), Michigan State senior Laura Kueny (individual).

Surprise sleepers: Washington (team), Texas sophomore Nicole Vandermade (individual).
