JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 13, 2014) – The latest edition of the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings were released on Monday and the ETSU men’s golf team moved to No. 26 in the national poll, while three Buccaneers are ranked in the top-100.
ETSU, who was ranked 31st in the previous poll, has finished in the top-5 in its first four tournaments this season, while also claiming the Inverness Intercollegiate title to begin the year. The Blue and Gold are coming off consecutive runner-up finishes at the Wolfpack Intercollegiate and this past weekend’s rain-shortened Bank of Tennessee Intercollegiate.
With its No. 26 ranking, ETSU is placed ahead of Georgia (No. 27), Virginia (No. 28), Virginia Tech (No. 33), Oklahoma State (No. 36) and Michigan (No. 38).
As the Bucs moved up five spots in the team poll, ETSU saw three of its golfers placed in the top-100 of the individual rankings – led by junior Adrian Meronk (Wroclaw, Poland) – who is ranked No. 19. Meanwhile, Chris Hickman (Centreville, Md.) is ranked 76th and Rhys Pugh (Pontypridd, Wales) is 94th.
ETSU returns to action this weekend as the Bucs head to Alpharetta, Ga. for the U.S. Collegiate Championship, which begins Friday.
