, while Baylor (No. 22) and Cincinnati (No. 25) entered the top-25.
Vanderbilt will headline a strong field at the Cabo Collegiate
which gets underway on Sunday at the Twin Dolphin Club in Los Cabos, Mexico. Joining the top-ranked Dores in Los Cabos will be No. 2 Texas Tech, No. 3 Arizona State, No. 6 Stanford, No. 10 Florida State, No. 15 Tennessee, No. 17 Alabama, No. 18 Oklahoma State and No. 22 Baylor.
