Huntingdon takes over No. 1 in Bushnell/Golfweek D-III Coaches Poll

There has been a shake-up in the Bushnell Golfweek D-III Coaches Poll.

Texas-Tyler lost its top spot in the rankings despite taking 11 of 18 first-place votes. The Patriots struggled to an eighth-place showing at the Golfweek Division III Fall Invitational to drop to that spot.

Meanwhile, new No. 1 Huntingdon placed second at that fall invite to garner four first-place votes – enough to move into the top spot.

Emory, ranked fourth, earned a first-place vote and St. Thomas (Minn.) takes two. The Tommies entered this latest poll unranked but rocketed to sixth after a win at the star-studded Golfweek event.

The next Bushnell/Golfweek Coaches Polls will be released Nov. 17. Here’s a full look at the Oct. 20 regular season rankings:
