Denison Women Ascend Final CSCAA Division III Poll

The CSCAA released its final Division III TYR Top-25 poll of the season Wednesday, with the Denison women climbing from the No. 3 spot to No. 1. Former No. 1 Kenyon fell to second to tie Emory, which maintained its No. 2 spot. The Tufts women shot up the ranks from 14th to seventh, and Pomona-Pitzer from 16th to ninth.

On the men’s side, the top three of No. 1 Denison, No. 2 Kenyon, and No. 3 Emory held steady. The Washington University men jumped from sixth to fourth, while Williams leaped from 19th to seventh and Tufts 20th to eighth.

Denison bout to destroy Kenyon at NCAAs!

questions

Too bad there is not an AP or College Playoff-type version of the CSCAA poll. Coaches just vote for what teams they have heard of.
Women (team, what they have going to NCAAs)
21: St Thomas-1 relay qualified
22: Hope-1 swimmer qualified

Men:
20-TCNJ-none
21-JCU-1 relay
23-Carthage-1 relay
25-BSU-none

Murphy is my dad

That’s not to say these teams didn’t have anyone qualify. Also, this ranking is supposed to be for dual meets
