Saint Leo one of seven Sunshine State Conference Teams in the top 25
SAINT LEO, Fla. – The latest Golf World/WGCA Division II College Coaches' Poll of the spring 2014 season has been released, and the Saint Leo University women's golf team remains as the No. 14 ranked team in the nation. The poll combines the resources of Golf World magazine and the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA). The complete results will appear in the April 7, 2014 issue of Golf World.
The Sunshine State Conference, the top Division II women's golf conference in the country, shows exactly why it proudly wears that label. In addition to the Lions, the SSC boasts seven schools in the top 25, and occupies the top four spots, and five of the top seven.
Defending NCAA Division II champion Lynn remains the unanimous choice to sit atop the poll at No. 1. The Fighting Knights claimed all 20 available first-place votes to keep their firm grasp on the top spot.
Barry held on to its No. 2 ranking in the poll with Florida Tech, Rollins and Tarleton State rounding out the top five.
Nova Southeastern is the lone school to jump into the top 10 doing so at No. 7.
Florida Southern sits one spot ahead of Saint Leo at No. 13.
Most recently, the Lions finished second at the Lady Argonaut Invitational, held at Stonebrook Golf Club in Pensacola, Fla. Saint Leo shot a three-round total of 947 (316-324-307). The Lions' Clare Connolly won the individual title shooting a 226 (77-76-73) en route to the win.
Saint Leo will get back to action April 13-15 when it takes part in the Sunshine State Conference championships at Lake Jovita Country Club.
