CSCAA Division 3 Rankings: Emory Stays Atop for Women, as does MIT for Men

PHOENIX, Arizona, February 8. A new set of Division III college rankings was released today by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America. Emory University remains the unanimous number one team in Division III Women's Swimming and Diving, while on the men's side M.I.T. retains the number one ranking from the previous College Swimming Coaches Association of America ranking.

Williams moves into the top five women's programs while NESCAC Rival Amherst moves to sixth after defeating MIT. Wellesley College moves into the top-20 for the first time this season after a dual meet win over Connecticut College.

For the men, Williams and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps both move into the top-10, after CMS defeated number 18 Redlands and Williams held their own in a loss to number 1 MIT.

The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Division 3 Swimming and Diving Team Rankings are voted on by six CSCAA member coaches. This is the final ranking of the 2012-2013 season.

The CSCAA D3 Poll Committee will produce in-season rankings of the 20 best performing NCAA Division 3 Swimming and Diving teams in rank order at the time of each poll. The poll is not designed to predict the results of the NCAA Championship, but rather which teams would win head-to-head against other teams in the country.
