Seeding of the Big West Championship was based on each team's ranking in Golfstat.

LAST YEAR AT THE BIG WEST CHAMPIONSHIP
UC Davis finished with a record-breaking final round 292 last season at the Tijeras Creek Golf Club in Rancho Santa Margarita to claim its third consecutive Big West Women's Golf Championship title. The Aggies broke an 11-year conference championship team record set by New Mexico State in 1999 (871) with their three-day total of 867. LBSU finished second firing a three-day score of 885 followed by Cal Poly (895) in third and UC Irvine (901) in fourth. Rounding out the seven-team field was UC Riverside (922), Cal State Northridge (926) and Cal State Fullerton (947).

Crowned individual champion last season for the Aggies and since graduated, Alice Kim leaves runner-up Monica Villarreal of LBSU and third place finisher Demi Runas of UCD as two of the favorites for the title this week. Runas is nationally ranked for her performance this season, capturing two tournament titles and five top-10 finishes. She is the league leader with a 73.4 average followed by teammate Amy Simanton (74.6) and UC Irvine's Lalita Patipaksiri (75.0).

LAST TIME IN SAN LUIS OBISPO, 49ERS WENT DANCING
It was three years ago at the San Luis Obispo Country Club when LBSU won its first-ever Big West Conference Championship and received the automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament. The 49ers won on the last hole by one-stroke over No. 24 UC Irvine and UC Davis, finishing with a 54-hole total of 929 to advance to the NCAA West Regional in Tempe, Ariz. LBSU was led by Big West Freshman of the Year Lee Lopez, 49er All-American Kay Hoey, Brenda Chhuor, Reina Rogers and Lindsey McAtee.

49ERS IN THE RANKINGS
In the latest rankings, LBSU comes in at No. 68 in Golfstat and No. 69 in the Golfweek/Sagarin ratings. LBSU remains the second highest ranked team in the Big West Conference behind UC Davis as the Aggies are ranked 22nd (Golfstat) and 25th (Golfweek).

VILLARREAL, ZAVALETA LEADS LBSU AT HALF MOON BAY
Seniors Monica Villarreal and Noelle Zavaleta were the top players for the 49ers, tying for 59th place at the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate at Half Moon Bay Golf Links Ocean Course. Both players completed the two-day, 54-hole tournament at 13-over 229. LBSU finished in 15th place with a 47-over 911.
