Methodist maintains perch atop Bushnell/Golfweek Division III Coaches Poll

·2 min read

Methodist widened its lead atop the Bushnell/Golfweek Division III Coaches Poll by receiving nine first-place votes for the latest edition of the poll. That kept them atop Illinois Wesleyan, which received one first-place vote and remained in the No. 2 spot.

Emory moved up two spots to No. 3 and Carnegie Mellon stayed at No. 4. Fifth-ranked Huntingdon slipped two spots despite a first-place vote.

Lower in the poll, there was considerable movement – like Wittenberg’s jump from No. 10 to No. 6 and Babson’s jump from T-23 to No. 9 after receiving one first-place vote.

Take a look at the full poll below, along with teams receiving additional votes at the bottom.
