NORTHFIELD, Minn.—The Carleton College women’s golf team moved up five spots to 19th in the latest Golf World/WGCA Division III College Women’s Coaches’ Poll.

The Knights, who opened the season ranked 24th, have recorded a pair of runner-up finishes and one third-place finish in four tournaments in the fall portion of their 2013-14 season. Carleton finished second by two shots at the season-opening Georgianni Memorial Invite and also finished second by five shots at its own D3 Classic.

Defending national champion Mary Hardin-Baylor retained the top spot. Joining it in the top five is Methodist, Texas-Tyler, DePauw and Washington University (St. Louis). Two other MIAC teams are ranked, as St. Thomas is 13th and Gustavus Adolphus 16th.

The Knights, along with the rest of the conference, are in action next weekend at the MIAC Championships on Oct. 5-7 at Bunker Hills Golf Club in Coon Rapids, Minn. The team champion of the event earns the conference’s automatic bid to next spring’s NCAA Championship.
