    BOULDER—Coming off the most dominant performance in program history, the University of Colorado women’s golf team earned National Team of the Week honors by Golfweek, the publication announced Thursday.


    The Buffaloes won the 2012 Clover Cup, hosted by Notre Dame in Mesa, Ariz., by 31 strokes with a team score of 277-281-297—855, well ahead of second place Oklahoma (886). The Buffs first round 277 was a school record and the first time CU had finished 10 or more strokes below par in a round (-11), while the second round 281 marked the third-best round in school history.


    Perhaps more impressively, the Buffs finished 1-2-3 in the final individual standings and had four golfers in the top six. The Buffs were led by senior Jess Wallace, who won her second career event, and followed closely by sophomore Alex Stewart in second and senior Emily Talley in third. Sophomore Jenny Coleman finished tied for sixth. It marked the first time CU has had more than two golfers finish in the top five and more than three golfers finish in the top 10 in an event.

    We're now ranked #11 in the nation in Golfweek and #14 in Golfstat. This team has a chance to continue making noise. Got a shot at winning the Pac-12 Championship (hosted by Wazzu at the end of April). Also, good shot of getting through the NCAA Regionals we're hosting in May.

    I can't understand how we can be ranked #11 after beating half the top 10 in the Sugar Bowl tournament, and absolutely dominating this last tournament. Seems like we should be ranked much higher.
