CSCAA NCAA Division I Women’s Swimming and Diving Ranking as of January 15, 2015

TUCSON – The journey to the NCAA Women’s Division I Swimming and Diving Championships got even more exciting today, as the California Golden Bears and the Georgia Bulldogs each claim the number one spot in the first poll of 2015 by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America.

The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Division I Team Rankings are compiled by nine CSCAA-member coaches and one media member. The rankings will be released on a weekly basis throughout the 2014-15 season, alternating weeks between a men’s and women’s team ranking.

The CSCAA DI Poll Committee will produce in-season rankings of the 25 best performing NCAA Division I 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. Rankings are based on performances that have taken place since the previous poll and include invites as well as dual meets.
