CSCAA February 16th 2015 Coaches’ Poll Sees Cal Women Leapfrog Defending Champs from Georgia

The Cal women, after their dual meet victory over #3 Stanford, have jumped the two-time defending champions from Georgia for the top spot in the latest CSCAA Coaches’ Poll.

Aside from that, there weren’t many huge shakeups in the latest rankings. The biggest movement in the top 10 was the slide from the North Carolina women, who fell to 9th place from 5th in the previous rankings despite winning both of their dual meets (against Duke and NC State) since the January 29th edition was released. When the last polls came out, voters were coming straight off of the excitement of the Tar Heels’ narrow victory over 7-time defending ACC champs from Virginia, but the Cavaliers have once again moved ahead of the Tar Heels.

this is actually a reasonable ranking, as opposed to the men, which is crazy


The last men’s poll was “shovel ready”.

The caption under the picture is misleading. Cal by no means dominated Stanford. I watched the meet on the Pac 12 network and if I remember correctly, Stanford was only down by around 10 points going into the final relay. The meet was close all the way through. I believe the final score was 150 something to 140 something.
