      Arkansas women's golf team picked No. 8

      FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - The University of Arkansas women's golf team has been selected No. 8 in the Golf World/Women's Golf Coaches Association Coaches poll.

      Wednesday's preseason ranking comes on the heels of Arkansas' No. 10 selection by Golfweek.com.

      Senior All-American and All-Southeastern Conference selection Emily Tubert and senior Emma Lavy have helped Arkansas to three consecutive NCAA Championship appearances - including a program-best tie for fifth place in 2011.

      Tubert returns as the team's leading scorer, averaging 73.41 last year with two individual titles as a junior.

      Defending national champion Southern California was selected in the top spot, followed by Alabama.

      Six SEC teams were selected in the Top 25 - tying the Pac-12 -and six other league members received votes in the preseason poll.
