    NEW YORK, NY (October 16, 2013)—The latest Golf World/WGCA Division I College Women’s Coaches’ Poll has been released, combining the resources of Golf World magazine and the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA). The complete results, including results from Divisions II and III, will appear in the October 21, 2013 issue of Golf World and are live now.
     
    USC, victorious in its first two starts of the 2013-14 college season, remains atop the latest Golf World/WGCA women's Division I coaches' poll. The Trojans extended a school-record winning streak to five events dating back to last spring when they won the Dale McNamara Fall Preview and the Windy City Classic last month. The defending NCAA champions claimed 13 of the 22 available first-place votes in the latest poll.
     
    Rising to the No. 2 spot was UCLA, which earned five first-place votes. The Bruins won the Mason Rudolph Invitational to open their fall season. Oklahoma State, winner of The Schooner Classic in its latest start, rose to No. 3 in the poll.
     
    Rounding out the top five are Oklahoma and Duke, the Blue Devils claiming a first-place vote.
     
    Other schools receiving a single first-place vote are No. 6 Alabama, No. 10 Stanford and No. 11 Washington.
