It might be a new year, but the top teams in the college swimming and diving world are still the same according to the latest CSCAA / TYR Top 25 Swimming and Diving Poll. The Texas A&M women and California men have been voted number one in the second-straight poll.  Both teams saw their leads shrink as the season heads towards February’s conference championships.

The Aggie maintained the top spot for the second-straight poll. Michigan, powered by a win over Indiana moved up two from second to knock defending NCAA Champion Stanford University to third. Texas and California round out the top five.

On the men’s side, California again collected every first-place ballot, just ahead of Texas. Indiana and Florida moved up to third and fourth respectively while Stanford remained in fifth place, one point ahead of NC State.

The poll aims to measure the top teams in head-to-head competition.

The rankings are voted on by CSCAA-member coaches and the next poll is scheduled for release on February 7th.
