The poll results will be featured in the September 6 issue of Golf World and can be viewed online at www.golfworld.com. Nova Southeastern (Fla.) was selected as the nation's top-ranked team with 16 first-place votes and 447 total points.
Ferris State, under the direction of fourth-year head coach Mike Mignano, started off its 2010-11 season this past weekend (Sept. 5-6) with a fifth-place showing at the 2010 Ferris State Tom Kirinovic Classic in Big Rapids, Mich.
