USC women keep top spot in coaches' poll

September 25, 2013

The name of the school atop the latest Golf World/WGCA women's Division I coaches' poll should come as no surprise, USC claiming all 21 first-place votes after starting the 2013-14 season with an impressive comeback victory at the Dale McNamara Fall Preview.

However, take a look at the rest of the top 25 and you'll see a few new names and a few names occupying a few spots for the first time in school history.


Defending NCAA champion Lynn maintained its No. 1 ranking in the latest Golf World/WGCA Division II coaches' poll, earning 17 of the 25 available first-place votes. The Fighting Knights finished second in their season opener, the Lady Falcon Invitational.

Nova Southeastern, with four first-place votes, claimed the No. 2 spot while Barry rose to No. 3, receiving two first-place votes of its own.

Mary Hardin-Baylor hung on to the No. 1 ranking in the latest Golf World/WGCA Division III coaches' poll earning 12 of the 18 available first-place votes. It's the first time any school other than Methodist has been No. 1 in consecutive polls since Golf World and the WGCA teams up to publish the women's poll.
