Under the leadership of Golda Borst, the Kentucky women's golf team is on the rise. The Wildcats are currently ranked No. 24 heading into this weekend's Darius Rucker Intercollegiate, where six of the nation's top-10 teams will compete.

With three top-five finishes in five tournaments so far this season, UK is starting to attract some national attention. In fact, Julie Williams of Golfweek led off her notebook this week with a story about the Cats:

Kentucky will play in the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate this weekend for the first time, another deep field for the Wildcats.

"They know this will be the most challenging field they'll play," said Borst, who is encouraging her team to stay patient.

Ultimately, Kentucky golf has its collective eyes on SEC powerhouse status. For Borst, who found Lexington, Ky., four years ago after a three-year assistant coaching stint at LSU and four years on the Tennessee roster, the SEC is in her blood. She was part of a 2006 Lady Vol team that came up one shot short of winning the SEC title.

"This is where I always wanted to coach," she said.

Her passion has begun to pay off.
