NSU golf team ranked 22nd

The Northeastern State women’s golf team landed at No. 22 in the 2013-14 Golf World/WGCA Division II College Women’s Preseason Coaches’ Poll, the two organizations announced on Wednesday.

The RiverHawks are coming off an eighth-place finish at the 2013 NCAA Championship, and they also finished runner-up in their first season as members of the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association.

This marks the 16th straight year NSU has earned a top-25 national rank at some point during the season.

The RiverHawks, who earned 130 points in the polls, are the second-highest team from the MIAA, as rival Central Oklahoma landed at No. 13 with 268 points.

Lynn, the defending national champion, landed in the top spot with 615 points and 16 first-place votes.

Northeastern State will begin the 2013-2014 campaign at the Lady Panthers’ Fall Shootout, which will be held Sept. 9-10 at the Silo Ridge GC in Bolivar, Mo. In the photo, NSU golfer Kayla Schroeder ties off during last year’s NCAA Championship.
