Four members of the Arizona women’s golf team have earned all Pacific 10 Conference honors in a vote by the conference’s coaches.

Sophomore Margarita Ramos is the lone Wildcat to be named to the first team. She joins Annika Sorenstam, Lorena Ochoa and Natalie Gulbis, among others, to earn first-team all conference honors while playing for Arizona.

Ramos led the Wildcats with a 73.14 scoring average, which includes 22 rounds over the span of eight events. She had three top-10 finishes to go along with two other top-20 finishes.

Sophomore Isabelle Boineau was named to the second-team all Pac-10. Boineau is the No. 35 collegiate women’s player in the nation according to the Golfweek/Sagarin

Performance Index and is second on the team with a 73.27 scoring average she holds with six top-20 finishes.

Junior Alejandra Llaneza and freshman Sherlyn Popelka were named as honorable mentions. This is Llaneza’s second consecutive year receiving all Pac-10 honors, as she was named to the second team last year.

Popelka highlighted her freshman campaign by winning the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown, the first win for a UA golfer since Alison Walshe won the 2008 NCAA West Regional.

Arizona, No. 1 UCLA and No. 2 ASU all had four players earn all-conference recognition.
