Top 11 Remains the Same in CWPA Women’s Top 25 Behind #1 USC

The top 11 spots in the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) women’s water polo Top 25 poll remained the same as all 15 Week 4 matches involving ranked teams saw the favorite prevail.

#1 USC maintained its stranglehold on the top spot as the defending champions moved to 13-0 and extended its current win streak to 29 matches heading into this weekend’s prestigious Barbara Kalbus Invitational in Irvine, California. The event will pit the Trojans against #8 Arizona State, #9 UC Santa Barbara and #25 San Diego State in Pool A action.

The 32-match tournament also will bring more ranked meetings as all 16 involved teams are listed in this week’s CWPA poll, including the entire Top 10 as well as #12 Loyola Marymount, #13 San Jose State, #17 Long Beach State and UC San Diego, #21 Cal State Northridge and #25 San Diego State.

There were only a few slight adjustments to the poll from Week 4 and to Week 5 as San Jose State dropped one place from a tie for #12 to #13, and Indiana climbed one place from #20 to a tie for #19. Marist also bumped up a spot from #23 into a tie for #22.

Azusa Pacific rejoined the Top 25 in a tie for the final spot after receiving votes a week ago.
