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. See our most recent women’s Power Rankings here and men’s Power Rankings here.

Defending champions for both men and women, Queens, top the first edition of the 2019-2020 CSCAA coaches poll. On the men’s side, Indianapolis and Delta State rank 2nd and 3rd, reversing their finish order from the 2019 NCAA Division II championships. On the women’s side, UC San Diego narrowly clipped Drury, last year’s runner-up, for the #2 spot. UC San Diego finished 6th last year.

Keep in mind that these polls differ from our power rankings in that typically focus on duel meet strength, rather than championship performance.
