The national champion Arizona women's golf team returned home Thursday afternoon to a heroine’s welcome as fans celebrate the squad at the Jim Click Hall of Champions.
The ladies will always have a place there after winning their third national championship in thrilling fashion Wednesday at Karsten Creek Golf Club in Stillwater, Okla.
Arizona became the first No. 8 seed to win the match play championship as it defeated second-seeded Alabama, 3-2, on Haley's Moore clinching birdie putt in an extra hole playoff.
A day earlier, the Wildcats upended No. 1 seed UCLA in the quarterfinals and No. 5 seed Stanford in the semifinals.
Arizona became the fourth consecutive Pac-12 school to win the national championship. The title is the third for the Wildcats, who previously captured the 1996 and 2000 national championships.
