DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke women’s golf team concluded the 2012 fall campaign ranked No. 2 nationally in the latest Golf World/WGCA Division I College Coaches’ Poll, which was released this week.  In four tournaments this fall, the Blue Devils turned in two second place ledgers, while also placing fourth and sixth. 

Taking the top spot was Southern California with 15 first place votes and a total of 584 points, while Duke was second with one first place vote and 510 points.  Rounding out the top 10 was Washington, Florida, Arizona, North Carolina, Arizona State, Alabama, Oklahoma and Vanderbilt. 

Duke finished the fall with a second place finish at the Landfall Tradition.  The Blue Devils were down by only one stroke after the first round and held a four-stroke lead mid-way through the second round before the final two rounds were cancelled due to inclement weather from hurricane Sandy.  In the season-opener, Duke turned in a second place ledger at the Cougar Classic. 

The Blue Devils were led by the trio of senior Lindy Duncan, freshman Celine Boutier and junior Laetitia Beck during the fall.  A native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Duncan posted a team-best 71.60 stroke average and notched three top 10 placements.  Boutier, who is from Montrouge, France, collected a 73.50 stroke average, one top five and two top 20 finishes.  Along with four rounds of even or under par, Beck totaled a 73.80 stroke average and two top 20 placements. 

Duke will be off until Feb. 11-13 when the Blue Devils will travel to Palos Verdes, Calif., to participate in the Northrop Grumman Challenge.
