Golfers Ranked 9th Nationally
The second Golfworld / Nike Division III Men's Golf Coaches Poll of the fall season was released today and Oglethorpe currently sits in the 9th position.
A victory at the Golfweek Fall Invitational has propelled Greensboro to the top spot in the poll after coming in seventh in the preseason ranking. The Pride defeated several ranked programs, including previous No. 1 Methodist, to kick off their 2010-11 season. The victory secured them 17 of the 18 first-place votes.
Huntingdon remained No. 2 after finishing second to Greensboro in the Fall Invitational. Methodist dropped to third in the poll with a fourth place finish in the opening tournament.
The Petrels will have a chance to move up the rankings if they can post a good result in a loaded field at the upcoming Gordin Collegiate Classic on October 10 and 11.
