    With the first half of the 2012-13 season completed, USC lays claim to the No. 1 ranking in the final fall Golf World/WGCA women's Division I coaches' poll. The Trojans, ranked third in the preseason poll, won the Stanford Intercollegiate to close out the fall and finished third in their two other starts, helping them earn 18 of the 24 available first-place votes.

    Finishing the fall in the No. 2 spot is Washington, the Huskies earning three first-place votes. It's the highest the Seattle school has finished in the Golf World ranking since the poll was resumed in 2001-02. UW started the 2012-13 campaign unranked in the preseason poll.

    Rounding out the top five are Duke, Florida and Oklahoma. The Sooners also are ranked higher than at any time since 2001-02.

    No new teams entered the top 10. Three new schools joined the top 25: No. 21 Notre Dame, No. 22 Texas Tech and No. 25 Iowa State.
