The Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) has released its first spring coaches poll. For Carnegie Mellon, not much has changed.

Carnegie Mellon University received seven first-place votes to begin the spring at No. 1, while Methodist University sits at No. 2.

The Tartans of Carnegie Mellon also began the 2020 spring season seated atop the first WGCA Coaches Poll. It’s just that the season ended abruptly shortly after that because of COVID.

Washington University in St. Louis comes in at No. 3 with two first-place votes, followed by George Fox University at No. 4, while Williams College received one first-place vote to rank No. 5.

Check out the full rankings below.
