Golf team earns rank
The Georgia College golf squad has been ranked No. 8 by the Golf World/Nike Golf Preseason National Rankings for Division II recently released by the Golf Coach Association of America.
All five starters return for the 2012-13 season after a successful previous season. The team won two tournaments in 2012, one of which was the NCAA South/Southeast Super Regional for the second time in school history. After advancing to the National Quarterfinals, GC fell out of the competition in medal-match play.
The Bobcats racked in one out of the 18 first-place votes, with Nuva Southeastern University taking the first-place position. Second place went to Barry University, with Chico State in third, CSU-Stanislaus in fourth and USC Aiken making the ranks at fifth.
GC tees off for the first time this season Sept. 10-11 at the SpringHill Suites Intercollegiate in Florence, S.C. The two-day event will have three rounds, two on Monday and the last on Tuesday.
