Texas Men, Virginia Women No. 1 in CSCAA Preseason Poll

The University of Texas men’s team and University of Virginia women are ranked first in the College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) Division I preseason poll, released Thursday.

Both teams won national championships in 2021, with the Virginia women claiming their first title and the Longhorns their 15th.

Texas earned all 15 first-place votes in the men’s pool. California was the consensus second on all ballots. Florida, NC State and Indiana rounded out the men’s top five. The top three are identical to the finish at NCAAs.

Virginia claimed 12 of 15 first-place votes in the women’s pool. The other three went to Stanford, which is second in the rankings. NC State follows in third, ahead of Michigan and Texas.

The rankings are voted on by CSCAA member coaches and select media. Each committee includes nine representatives from the Power Five leagues, five at-large programs and two media members. The women and men committee chairs are SMU’s Naya Higashijima and Navy’s Bill Roberts.
