Okla. State still riding high in men's poll

The No. 1 ranked teams in each of the men's coaches' polls remain unchanged from the previous spring ranking, with Oklahoma State, Chico State, Guilford and Oklahoma City all maintaining their top spots.


The biggest mover in Division I edition of the poll is San Diego State, which jumped from 12th place to a share of sixth, thanks to victories at the USC Invitational and the Fresno State Lexus Classic. This is the highest the Aztecs have been ranked since the return of the Golf World polls in 2000-01.


Chico State claimed just two of the 15 first-place votes available in the D-II men's poll, but remained No. 1 overall. The Wildcats have yet to finish worse than second in any of their six tournament starts, winning two team titles.


With a victory at the Pine Needles Intercollegiate, its fourth of the 2010-11 season, Guilford remained No. 1 in the D-III men's poll. The Quakers claimed 13 of the 15 first-place votes to maintain their top spot for the fourth straight poll, dating back to last November.


Oklahoma City's hold on the top spot in the NAIA men's poll remained solid as the Stars mustered 11 of the 12 first-place votes. Coach Kyle Blaser's squad won its spring opener, the Lions Classic, to make it three victories in four starts this season, the team finishing third in its one other appearance.
