The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) released the November Edition of the 2022-23 Division I Top 25 Dual Meet Ranks. The committee, comprised of Division I coaches and select media outlets, ranks the top 25 teams in the nation based on dual meet strength. The committee uses head-to-head results as the top consideration. Common opponents and simulations are also considered when establishing monthly rankings. This poll does not predict top finishers in a championship meet format. Texas is the top ranked team in both the men and women’s polls this month.

On the men’s side, the Texas Longhorns (441 points) narrowly take the top spot from the California Golden Bears (440). NC State (406) maintains the third position. The Georgia Bulldogs (380) are fourth after an impressive win against the Florida. Arizona State (375 points) rounds out the top five. Of the top 25 teams, twenty appeared on all ballots. A total of thirty-two men’s teams earned at least one vote.

The Texas women (447 points) are first after winning a head-to-head match-up against Virginia. Virginia (434) and Stanford both slide one position to second and third, respectively. The NC State Wolfpack (396 points) keeps the 4th position and Southern California (361 points) moves into the fifth spot. Of the top 25 teams, twenty teams appeared on all ballots. A total of thirty women’s teams earned at least one vote.
