LEBANON, Tenn. -- Cumberland women's golf ranks fourth in the Mid-South Conference Pre-Season Coaches Poll announced on Wednesday by conference officials.

Last season, Cumberland endured a fourth-place finish at the Mid-South Conference championship that granted them an at-large birth to the NAIA National Championships.

Pilar Scenna was named First Team All-Conference, while Emma Hermansson and Nathalie Nutu were named Second Team All-Conference. Cumberland's only departure, Raquel Romero Valverde, was also a First Team All-Conference selection.
