The Oglethorpe men's golf team retained its spot atop the Division III Golf World/Nike Golf Coaches' Poll this week, as voted by members of the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Oglethorpe picked up nine of a possible 13 first-place votes and finished with 317 points in the poll, 18 points ahead of second-place Methodist. UT-Tyler, Nebraska Wesleyan and St. John's round out the Top 5. Methodist picked up a first-place vote, No. 7 Gustavus Adolphus garnered two, and No. 14 Wittenberg snagged the other one.
The Petrels won the SAA Fall Preview and the Oglethorpe/Royal Lakes Fall Invitational during the fall season, and finished third in both the Golfweek Division III Fall Preview and the Gordin Classic.
