Bucs rank among Top 15 in three other major collegiate lists

 

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 21, 2006) - The ETSU men's golf team moved to No. 10 in the most recent national college ranking released by Golfstat.com on Monday. Meanwhile, the Bucs moved to No. 11 in the Golfweek/Sagarin ratings, while also ranking 14th in the latest Golf World poll, and 13th in the most recent Golf Coaches Association of America listing.

 

The Bucs, who finished fifth last weekend at the GCAA Hall of Fame Invitational in Houston, Texas, have posted four-straight Top 5 finishes this spring - including a win at the General Hackler Invitational in Myrtle Beach, S.C., which was the first regular season tournament victory by the squad since 2001. In addition, junior Rhys Davies (Bridgend, Wales) currently stands as the No. 4 player in the nation according to the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings.

 

"It's nice to be in the Top 15 in all four rankings," said ETSU head coach Fred Warren. "We seem to be playing consistent golf right now and it's nice as we get later into the spring that the rankings reflect our consistency. We're playing at a very high level."
