Kenyon Women and Men Overtake Emory for #2 Spots in CSCAA DIII Ranks

Both the women’s and men’s team from Kenyon College inched closer to the top the CSCAA’s TYR Top-25 rankings in the organization’s December edition. The women moved from the No. 3 spot in the November edition to No. 2 in December, while the men leapfrogged both Emory and Johns Hopkins, going from 4 to 2. Denison’s women and men held steady in their No. 1 spots.

The rankings on the women’s side also saw former No. 6 NYU move into the top 5, and former No. 12 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps into the top-10. On the men’s side, the top-10 remains relatively unchanged outside of Kenyon, with the significant shakeup coming from the 11-25 spots.
