Monday, August 12, 2013
We are counting down the top 30 women's teams heading into the fall college season.

2012-13 Golfweek rank: 38
Go-to girl: Cassy Isagawa
Season outlook: With no seniors on the team this year, the Ducks expect junior Cassy Isagawa to continue to improve on the course and assume a larger leadership role off of it. Isagawa, who won the Topy Cup as a sophomore, posted five other top-6 finishes – including at the Pac-12 Championship and NCAA West Regional – and a 72.86 scoring average last season, when she finished No. 27 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings. Fellow junior Cali Hipp and sophomore Caroline Inglis also must take their games to the next level if Oregon is to return to the NCAA Championship and better last year's 22nd-place finish. Inglis posted five top 25s in 11 starts as a freshman and advanced to match play at the U.S. Women's Amateur along with junior teammate Monica Petchakan, who also should take on a larger role for the Ducks this season.
