The Georgia women’s swimming and diving team is off to a great start this season, winning their dual meet against North Carolina in dramatic fashion. The Bulldogs’ winning streak at home was challenged by North Carolina, but Georgia pulled off a four-point victory to keep their streak alive.

The first poll of the 2015-2016 season by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America has Georgia on top, well ahead of Stanford and Texas. Virginia takes fourth in the poll, while North Carolina’s strong meet against Georgia put them fifth.

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. Ranking are based on performances that have taken place since the previous poll and include invites as well as dual meets. The committee does not consider teams that have not yet competed in the current college season.
