West Florida Is The Preseason Pick in the Gulf South

The most heated rivalry in the Gulf South Conference should continue to make headlines this season.

The University of West Florida is the favorite not only to win the East Division, but the overall title thanks to nine first-place votes. Rival and defending GSC Champion, the University of Alabama-Huntsville, received four votes. Mississippi University for Women was selected as the favorite in the West Division and also notched one first-place vote.

The battle for supremacy in the East Division should continue between defending division champion West Florida (35) and defending GSC champion Alabama-Huntsville (31). UWF will seek revenge after losing last season to UAH in both the GSC finals and the NCAA South Region finals. Lincoln Memorial (26), Valdosta State (17), North Alabama (16) and West Alabama (15) should vie for GSC Tournament slots, while West Georgia (7) rounds out the voting.
