W-golf to tee off spring season

The Arizona women’s golf team is set to tee off the spring season Saturday, as play begins in the Peg Barnard Invitational, a two-day event hosted by Stanford University.   

Arizona hopes to build on a strong fall season in which they recorded two top-three finishes in four events played, including a first-place finish in the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown.

Sherlyn Popelka, who posted a 72.67 scoring average in three events played, including an individual victory at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown, leads the Wildcats into the weekend’s tournament.

Popelka, a freshman from Zurich, Switzerland, is one of five foreign-born players on the Wildcat roster, three of whom are the team’s top scorers.

This weekend marks the first time that UA has participated in the event.
