JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- Coming off of the heels of their championship in the Birkdale Collegiate Classic, ETSU was ranked 20th in the nation in the latest edition of the MasterCard Collegiate Golf Rankings (published 3/7/01) while senior All-American Chris Wisler was ranked sixth individually.

The Buccaneers won the Birkdale Classic by five strokes over 25th ranked-Wake Forest after shooting a two round total of 573 (290-283). Senior Pat Beste earned individual medalist honors by firing a 3-under par 141 (73-68) in his two rounds of play. Each of the Buccaneer golfers finished in the top-14 in the 15 team event. Wisler finished in a tie for 10th after shooting a 3-over par 147 (71-76).
