The Gustavus women’s golf team will enter the spring season ranked eighth in the country, according to the Golf World/National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) Division III Coaches’ Poll. 2010 Division III Coach of the Year Scott Moe’s team enters the Spring with high expectations, as they look to build on a fall season that saw Gustavus capture its third consecutive MIAC title.

According to the Golf World/NGCA Division III Coaches’ Poll, Methodist is the number one team in the country, followed by DePauw. Williams rounds out the top three heading into the spring season.
