8. Vanderbilt

2011-12 Golfweek rank: 9

Go-to girl: Lauren Stratton

Season outlook: Stratton needs to become the new Marina Alex. She has been growing for three years; now it’s time for the senior to take the spotlight in Alex’s former No. 1 role. Remember that Stratton took her own turn among Golfweek’s top 10 individuals early last spring. She ended the season ranked No. 21, then won the Tennessee Women’s Amateur and Tennessee Women’s Open over the summer. Kendall Martindale leads a strong supporting cast that also includes key returners Anna Leigh Keith and Rene Sobolewski.
