COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina women’s golf is No. 2 in the first Golfstat Relative Rankings of the 2014-15 season, Golfstat announced Wednesday. The ranking is the highest Golfstat ranking in program history.

The Gamecocks have started the season in impressive fashion, turning heads with their seven-stroke win at the ANNIKA Intercollegiate, the regular season’s most competitive event, to open the season. Senior Justine Dreher captured the individual title at the event. Last weekend, South Carolina and defending NCAA Champions Duke battled at the Tar Heel Invitational. Of the 18 teams, the Gamecocks and Blue Devils were the only ones to finish under par, with Duke earning a two-stroke win.

Just a year removed from a record-breaking season, South Carolina reached as high as No. 4 in the Golfweek rankings and No. 5 in Golfstat last year, both program highs at the time. The Gamecocks reached the No. 1 spot in Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings for the first time ever on Oct. 3; they are No. 2 in the most recent release from Golfweek.

South Carolina continues its fall season this weekend, traveling to Knoxville, Tenn., for the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate Championship. The event at the par -71, 5,870 yard Cherokee Country Club begins on Fri., Oct. 17.
