LCSC golf teams are
ranked in NAIA Top 25 fall polls
KANSAS CITY, Mo. –
The Lewis-Clark State College men’s and women’s golf
teams both were ranked in the NAIA’s Top 25 fall golf
polls, which were released on Friday.
The Warrior men
stand at No. 23, while the LCSC women are No. 17 in the
poll after finishing 13th at nationals last year.
Both LCSC teams
currently are second in the Frontier Conference
standings behind Rocky Mountain. The conference plays a
split fall and spring schedule because weather
conditions force most golf courses in Montana to remain
closed until late spring. The conference holds five
tournaments during the academic year, three in the fall
in Montana and two in the spring at Lewiston and Salt
Lake City, and combines the team scores from each
tourney to determine the overall champions.
The Warrior men,
who won the conference title last year, are one of five
Region I teams ranked in the Top 25. Oklahoma Christian
holds down the top spot, while the University of British
Columbia, last year’s Region I champion, is ranked
second. Defending national champion Oklahoma City is
The University of
Victoria men are ranked sixth, while Rocky Mountain is
at No. 13 and Concordia of Oregon is at No. 18.
On the women’s
side, defending champion Oklahoma City is the unanimous
No. 1 pick, followed by UBC at No. 2, Rocky at No. 7,
Concordia at No. 16, and Victoria at No. 18.
The LCSC men won’t
resume play until Feb. 18 in the two-day Phoenix
Intercollegiate Invitational in Arizona, while the women
open a week later at Quail Ridge Golf Course in
Clarkston at a home nonconference tournament.
The first NAIA
spring Top 25 golf polls will be released on Feb. 29.
