Eagles Receiving Votes in the Final GolfWorld/Nike Golf Coaches Poll

NEW YORK – With the 2011-12 golf season nearing its conclusion, the Bridgewater Eagles golfers received votes in the final GolfWorld/NikeGolf Division III Coaches Poll released on Wednesday morning.

Bridgewater's three votes put the Eagles in the other team's receiving votes category.

The Eagles' team victory at the McDaniel Spring Shootout and its fifth-place finish were both included in the most recent survey of the nation's coaches.

Methodist, with 14 of the 16 available first-place votes, kept hold of the No. 1 ranking in the final Golf World/Nike Golf men's Division III coaches' poll. The Monarchs won five times in 2011-12 and will attempt to claim their 11th NCAA golf title this week at Mission Inn Resort outside of Orlando.

Oglethorpe held on to its No. 2 spot, earning one first-place vote. UT-Tyler jumped one spot to No. 3 with Transylvania and Guilford rounding out the top five.

New to the top 10 is No. 8 LaVerne. One new school joined the top 25: No. 24 St. Thomas.
