PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast moved back atop the Bushnell Golfweek NJCAA Division II Coaches Poll today, grabbing five of seven first-place votes.
That allowed the Bulldogs, the defending national champions, to move past South Mountain, which was No. 1 in the first regular-season poll.
Gulf Coast and Meridian are the only MACJC teams in the top 10. The Eagles, who finished second by one shot at last year's national tournament in Foley, Ala., are ranked fifth.
Gulf Coast has won its first three matches, and the Bulldogs return to action Oct. 29-30 when they host the MGCCC Fall Invitational at Windance Country Club in Gulfport.
