Cal Men Jump From #6 To #1 In Latest CSCAA Poll

The men’s dual meet rankings continue to be volatile in 2016-2017, with the Cal men jumping from 6th to 1st in the latest CSCAA (College Swimming Coaches Association of America) poll. The Stanford women still lead.

With four polls released so far this season, we’ve had three different teams lead the men’s ranks. Indiana took the top spot in October, with NC State running #1 for two straight polls in February. Now December is the month of the Golden Bears, with Cal taking over spot #1.

The women’s polls have been much more stable, with Stanford leading the past 3 polls and Michigan sitting #1 before that. You can view the polls on the CSCAA website here, or at the bottom of this page.

  • +15 Stanford men
  • +14 Arizona women
  • +13 Arizona men
  • +8 California women
  • Unranked to 15th Virginia men

Biggest Fallers:

  • -10 Georgia Tech men
  • -8 Arizona State men

Porkchop2244

Considering Meyers is 24 and swimming one year for a team going for fifth place….guess he can do whatever he wants

Think it was the Cal women who had shot up from No. 10 to No. 2?

Georgia was already ranked No. 2 at the last poll conducted on Nov. 23
