USA South Releases Preseason Men's Golf Coaches' Poll

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. -- The USA South Athletic Conference released its preseason coaches' poll for men's golf on Thursday afternoon. Covenant was picked to finish eighth in the 11-team league, as voted on by the conference's 11 head coaches.

The 2013-14 season is Covenant's first in the USA South and as full members of NCAA Division III. 

The Scots are coming off a successful fall campaign that saw them claim just the second tournament title in school history at the Piedmont Fall Invitational. Sophomore James Van Nice led throughout the event to capture the individual crown. The Scots were selected as a team to appear in the NCCAA National Championships for the second time in school history.

LaGrange, ranked fifth in Division III by GolfStat, was chosen as the preseason favorite by collecting eight of the 11 first place votes. Defending conference champion Methodist picked up three first place tallies and finished second in the balloting. Greensboro, Huntingdon and Averett round out the top five.
