The final Nike/Golf World Coaches Poll of the regular season was released today and the Stormy Petrels remained ranked in ninth place. The Petrels will head to the 2011 NCAA Championships, however, having beaten 4 of the top 8 ranked teams in the country since the last poll was released.
Oglethorpe finished second overall at the Emory Spring Invitational earlier in the month, beating the most recent poll's No. 1 Guilford, No. 3 Methodist and No. 4 Greensboro in the process. Last weekend, the Petrels claimed their ninth SCAC Championship, besting No. 8 Centre en route to locking up a 13th trip to the NCAA's.
The 2011 Men's Golf Championships will be held in Greensboro, N.C. May 10-13.
