Nova Southeastern held on to the No. 1 ranking in the latest Golf World/Nike Golf men's Division II coaches' poll.
The Sharks earned 10 of the available 14 first-place votes, having won three times this season as they prepare to defend their NCAA title later this month.
In the No. 2 spot is Barry, which earned the remaining four first-place votes after beating Nova Southeastern by one stroke in the Sunshine State Conference Championship last month.
Rounding out the top five are No. 3 USC-Aiken and Florida Southern and Lynn, which tied for the No. 4 spot.
