As it has all season, the University of Texas men remain atop the latest College Swimming Coaches Association of America / TYR Top 25 Swimming & Diving Poll.  However, for the first time this season, the Longhorns did not capture every single first place vote.  While eight of the nine voters picked the defending NCAA champions, one selected second-ranked California.  Rankings are compiled by CSCAA-member coaches and released on a weekly basis, alternating between men’s and women’s team ranking.

Ohio State made the biggest jump in the poll, moving up seven spots to number fourteen.  Grand Canyon University made the highest debut, entering the ranking at #22.

The CSCAA Division Men’s Division I Committee produces in-season rankings of the 25 best performing NCAA 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.
