Men's Golf Tabbed Second in GAC Coaches Poll


August 28, 2019

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. — The Henderson State men's golf team was picked second in the 2019 Great American Conference Preseason Coaches Poll, the league office announced Tuesday afternoon.

The Reddies received 66 total votes, 15 less than preseason favorite Arkansas Tech, who collected 81 with nine first-place ballots cast in its favor. Henderson edged out Southern Arkansas, who received 65 votes, for second place.

One of the traditional powers in the league, the Reddies won five-straight GAC titles from 2014-2018 and were the No. 1 seed from the Central Region in the 2019 NCAA Central/Midwest Regional Tournament. Henderson spent the entirety of the 2018-19 season inside Top-25 polls, which culminated in a No. 8 national ranking entering the spring — the highest poll ranking in program history.

Henderson gets its 2019-20 campaign underway on Sept. 16-17 at the Northeastern State Golf Classic in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.
