BCC Golf Team Earns Preseason National Ranking
August 30, 2012 - The Brevard Community College golf team became the second Titans team to receive a preseason national ranking, coming in sixth in the Golf World/Nike Golf NJCAA Division I College Preseason Coaches' Poll.
Earlier this preseason the BCC women's soccer team was ranked eighth nationally in the NJCAA Division I poll and 13th nationally in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll.
Defending national champion Indian Hills of Iowa was ranked No. 1 in the Division I golf poll.
BCC head coach Jamie Howell isn't yet ready to anoint his team as a national power heading into the short fall season.
"Early preseason rankings are just that, preseason," Howell said. "Until we get out and compete in several events no one really knows where they may be in the grand scheme of rankings."
That being said, the national rankings resonate with BCC Athletic Director Jeff Carr.
"It is very exciting for the entire athletic program to be recognized on the national level. It says a lot about the quality of players our coaches are able to recruit and attract to BCC," Carr said.
To that end BCC finished eighth in its 10th consecutive appearance in the NJCAA national championship golf tournament last spring. It opens its six-event fall season at the Sept. 10-11 Wallace State Fall Invitational in Cullman, AL.
