HARROGATE, TN - Only days after rolling over the competition in the Cherokee Valley Invitational that was hosted by North Greenville University, the Lincoln Memorial University men's golf team received a no. 29 national ranking in the latest Golfstat poll released earlier this week.
While this past week's win at the Cherokee Valley Invitational is the Railsplitter's first tournament championship of the 2011 spring season, including this week's win, the LMU men have finished inside the top-5 in five of the eight tournaments in which they have participated this season. Furthermore, their efforts have also helped the LMU men's golf program earn a no. 10 regional ranking by the NCAA.
This week the Railsplitters participate in the Tennessee State University Big Blue Intercollegiate to be held at Kings Creek Golf Course in Spring Hill, Tennessee. The tournament will be the Railsplitter's final outing before the upcoming 2011 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Championship that will take place April 11th & 12th at Rock Barn Golf and Spa in Conover, North Carolina.
