Despite Indy Win, Queens Tops First Division II CSCAA Polls

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.

Despite losing a dual meet to Indianapolis over the weekend, the Queens men are still ranked #1 in the first 2018-2019 edition of the CSCAA’s dual meet poll for Division II.

Indy won the Queens-Indy-Wingate triangular meet on the men’s side. The meet, however, was swum in short course meters, rather than the typical short course yards NCAA format. In the CSCAA’s poll (which is specifically geared towards head-to-head competition) Queens sits 7 points ahead of Indy for the men’s #1 ranking.

Queens leads the women’s rankings by just 2 points over Drury.
