drury 10 years straight

PHOENIX – The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) NCAA Division II Swimming and Diving Team Rankings are voted on by a committee of CSCAA member coaches and one member of the media. The DII Rankings will be released four times during the 2014-15 Season. The poll is produced in conjunction with Swimming World Magazine and supported by TYR.  This time around, Drury continued to dominate the pools with a sweep of the top spot on the men’s and women’s side of the rankings.

The CSCAA DII Ranking Committee will produce in-season rankings of the 25 best performing NCAA Division II Swimming and Diving teams in rank order at the time of each poll. The rankings are 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. Ranking are based on performances that have taken place since the previous poll and include invites as well as dual meets.

Swimming World was invited as a media member to participate in the polling process. Jason Marsteller served as Swimming World’s representative on these conference calls.
