ETSU men earn No. 18 spot in GCAA national rankings
Thursday, August 28, 2008
The Buccaneers are ranked 18th in the poll, which is a determined in a vote of college coaches. A year ago, the Bucs finished 22nd in the country. UCLA is picked first again after winning the national championships a year ago, while Oklahoma State, Georgia, Southern California and Stanford round out the Top 5.
ETSU will return five players from its roster a year ago, including players such as Seamus Power (Waterford, Ireland) and Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England), who both were major contributors to the Bucs a year ago. Newcomers such as Scottish Boys Champion Michael Stewart (Troon, Scotland) and U.S. Amateur qualifier Devin Komline (Dorset, Vermont) are also expected to compete for positions on the top five this fall.
The Bucs will open their season Sept. 12 at the Carpet Capital Collegiate in Dalton, Ga. For more on ETSU men's golf throughout the fall and spring semesters, visit ETSUBucs.com and click on the men's golf link.
