The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) released its final TYR Top-25 poll of 2017 early last week, featuring some reshuffling amongst the top three teams on both the men’s and women’s side. The polls are voted on by CSCAA member-coaches, with a focus on head-t0-head-competition, rather than NCAA score-ability.
For the men, the only teams to claim a spot in the CSCAA top 3 this year remain there. While Kenyon claimed the preseason #1 spot, it fell to third in the November edition, but has climbed back up to second following strong performances and mid- and late-November invitationals. Denison maintains the #1 spot for the second edition in a row following its commanding performance at the Miami Invitational in early December, while Emory took 4th.
In the women’s rankings, Denison jumped NYU and Johns Hopkins following a third-place finish at the Miami Invitational, while Kenyon just edged out Emory based mostly on its speedy swims at the Total Performance Invite.
