William Penn 18th in Postseason Poll

Oskaloosa–The Statesmen women’s golf team toppled several higher-ranked teams at last week’s national championship, earning itself a lofty position in the NAIA’s postseason top-25 poll Friday.

WPU, which placed 18th at nationals with a two-day score of 667 (332-335), jumped six rungs to #18.  The squad is the only team from the Heart of America Athletic Conference in the poll, while Briar Cliff (unofficially #29) is receiving votes nationally.

National champion Oklahoma City is first in the poll, while Embry-Riddle (Ariz.), South Carolina Beaufort, Dalton State (Ga.), and Keiser (Fla.) round out the top five.
