As the fall season winds to a close, it’s time to recognize players who set themselves apart as frontrunners in women’s college golf over the past two and a half months.

There are plenty of talented women, however, on her heels.

In women’s college golf, the mid-season exodus is old news. It happens almost every year after LPGA Q-School.
