(STILLWATER, Oklahoma / October 6, 2017) – With an NCAA-best 21-1 record against top-50 teams, the Oklahoma State women’s golf team surged three spots up to No. 5 in this week’s Golfweek national ranking.

The Cowgirls are coming off a second-place finish at the Windy City Collegiate just two weeks after winning their season-opening event, the Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational. OSU is 11-1 against top-25 competition this season, which is the second-best mark in the country.

Maddie McCrary won the individual title at the Windy City, and Golfweek rewarded her with the No. 8 national individual ranking. The senior, who won the Women's Texas Golf Association State Amateur Championship over the summer, has seven wins against top-25 individuals this season, which is tied for the fifth most in the country.

Two-time Big 12 individual champion Kenzie Neisen checked in at No. 20 in the rankings, while freshman Stephanie Astrup is No. 30.

The Cowgirls will spend next week preparing for the Stanford Intercollegiate, which will be played Oct. 16-18 in Stanford, Calif.
