West Florida garnered 14 of the 26 first-place votes this week but Lynn University collected more overall points and is therefore the new No. 1 in the latest Division II Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll.

Lynn was previously No. 2, while West Florida climbed up from No. 4. South Carolina-Aiken is No. 3 and Barry is No. 4 and all four of those squads were able to leap ahead of previous No. 1 Lincoln Memorial, which did receive one first-place vote this time around.

Georgia Southwestern State was a big mover, jumping from 19th to 6th in the poll. Arkansas Tech is up from 11th to 7th. Saint Leo, Central Missouri and Lee round out the top ten.

Lynn won the Space Coast Collegiate Champ on Tuesday at Duran Golf Club in Melbourne, Florida, after finishing as the only team under par.
