    The Virginia Tech golf team is ranked ninth in the 2001-02 Golf World magazine poll. This is a final poll from the fall season.

    Defending national champion Florida is the top ranked team in the poll, followed by Georgia Tech and Oklahoma State. The Hokies were tied with current #11 Arizona at 10th place entering the fall season. Tech finished the 2000-01 season with an eighth place finish at the NCAA Golf Championship in Durham, N.C.

    In the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings of individual players, Virginia Tech junior Brendon de Jonge (Harare, Zimbabwe) is ranked seventh. He's joined in the top 100 by teammates senior Johnson Wagner (Garrison, N.Y.) in 56th place and sophomore Ryan Stinnett (Amherst, Va.) in 79th place. This is the first time that the Hokies have placed three individuals in the top 100.

    Tech opens the spring season on Feb 18-19 at the Matlock Collegiate Classic at the Grasslands Golf Club in Lakeland, Fla.
