Cal Men, Texas Women Surge To Top Of Second CSCAA Dual Meet Poll

Editor’s Note: SwimSwam is not on the voting panel for the CSCAA Dual Meet Rankings, but the rankings are posted as a courtesy to the CSCAA. See our most recent men’s Power Rankings here and women’s Power Rankings here.

There are some major shakeups in the second round of the CSCAA (College Swimming Coaches Association of America) Division I dual meet polls. There’s a Texas team on top, but it’s not the four-time defending champion men’s program – it’s the Longhorn women.

Texas’s women rose from 4th to 1st from the preseason polls two weeks ago. That comes after big wins against Indiana and Florida on the road. Meanwhile on the men’s side, Texas lost to Indiana and Florida in that same triangular, and now rank just fifth in the nation. The Cal men have taken over the #1 spot after easy wins vs Pacific and Utah, while the defending NCAA champion Stanford women sit #2 behind Texas.

You can find the full CSCAA ranks below, or on their website here.

George Washington??? How did they get a vote!

Most coaches’ polls release the coaches’ ballots. The CSCAA does not. If they did, then we could all play conspiracy theories with who might have done it. In September, on our volleyball site, we reported on two coaches who inexplicably left the defending NCAA Champions Nebraska off their ballots one week. The next week, they were back, and ranked in the top 10: https://volleymob.com/nebraska-left-off-of-two-poll-submissions-in-avca-coaches-poll/
