Florida Tech kicked it off with a third-place finish in the NCAA Division II Fall Preview.

Sophomore Rachel Polson highlighted the tournament with her first collegiate victory, posting a one-over-par mark to bring home the trophy.

The Panthers are one of seven Sunshine State Conference teams to appear in the Golf World/WGCA Poll, with Nova Southeastern topping the list with 538 points.
