Gulf Coast maintains hold on No. 1

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast maintained its hold on the top spot in the Bushnell Golfweek NJCAA Division II Coaches Poll, the Golf Coaches Association of America announced.


The Bulldogs, who are the defending national champions, have won three of the first five events on their schedule. They haven't lost to a Division II this season.


MGCCC received three of five first-place votes to edge South Mountain. Meridian, the only other MACJC team in the poll, is ranked fifth.


The Bulldogs are second in the Golfstat rankings behind South Mountain.


Gulf Coast returns to action in the spring with a mid-February trip to Fairhope, Ala., for the Coastal Alabama Invitational.
