KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Nov. 6, 2017) – The Johnson & Wales men's golf team has been ranked No. 4 in the latest NAIA Men's Golf Coaches' Top 25, the national office announced on Friday.

"It was a solid start to the season and obviously great to win the Dave Adamonis Sr. Invitational," Head Coach AJ Broderick said. "Every tournament is important, but the fall is a good opportunity to see how we react in different situations. I think we already have faced some good adversity thus far which helps prepare you for later on in the spring. Being ranked fourth in the country is exciting. It's credit that our players deserve and hopefully take a lot of pride in. Those three teams ahead of us are very good, but I'm confident we can hang tough, compete and do some special things with this group."

The Wildcats finished the fall with four top-three finishes, including a first-place finish in the 2017 Dave Adamonis Sr. Invitational at Trump National Doral back in October.

JWU is led by Alex Rainville and Cody Booska, who are both tied for 42nd in the nation with each having a stroke average of 73.00.
