Stanford Women Regain Top Spot In Jan 31 CSCAA Dual Meet

Note: SwimSwam does not have a voting stake in the CSCAA Awards, which focus on dual meet viability. For rankings more geared towards NCAA prediction, check out our latest Power Rankings. (Women’s ranks here, men’s ranks coming next week).

The Stanford women regained the #1 spot in the latest CSCAA (Collegiate Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America) poll, leapfrogging Texas A&M for the first time since November.

The A&M women had led for two straight polls. On the men’s side, Cal remains #1, with three-time defending NCAA champs Texas dropping all the way down to 8th. That comes after a road dual meet loss to Arizona State, the team’s fifth loss this year. The Longhorns, however, are still widely considered the favorites for the NCAA title in March with Cal as the top challengers.

The biggest riser on the women’s side was NC State, which jumped from 15th to 10th. On the men’s side, Arizona State rose from 10th to 7th. The biggest drops came from the Texas men (2nd to 8th) and Louisville women (10th to 14th).

Oopsie…I looked at the past ranking dated December 6. My bad…ASU Women’s are #26 with 8 votes still ahead of UCLA!

Great improvement year after year under Coach Bob Bowman! Way to Go Lady Devils…??☀️?

I clicked on this story right after reading about a key NC State injury. That abrupt jump up in rankings might followed by an equal drop back down. #badluck

Glad to see NC State Women getting some respect. Even though they’ve had several of their top women sick or injured in their last two dual meets (UVA and UNC) they still rallied (easily beat UNC) and got some really decent (tired) swims from their second tier swimmers. Anna Jahns 9:58 ,1000 at UVA for third? NICE!!

Stars like Hannah Moore, Elise Haan, Julia Pool, Tamila Holoub and Krista Duffield are consistently putting out some fast times and and when injured or sick teammates, like Ky-lee Perry, Kate Moore, and Courtney Caldwell return, it will be a MUCH stronger team.
