The College Swimming Coaches Association of America announces the third CSCAA / TYR Top 25 Poll for Divisions II and III. While the year on the calendar may have changed, the top number one rankings did not. Queens University of Charlotte led both men’s and women’s Division II polls, as they have for the entire season. In Division III, Emory University and Kenyon College led women’s and men’s standings respectively.

There was some additional movement in the third Division III regional rankings of the season. The Kenyon men remained atop the Central Region, but the women dropped a spot to NCAC rival Denison University. Emory swept the West-Midwest-South Regions. In the Northeast-North, Williams’ women dropped NYU to second while MIT’s men remained on top. Once again, Carnegie Mellon’s men and TCNJ’s men were voted number one in Northeast-South region

The CSCAA Division II and III Poll Committees will produce 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. The committee does not consider teams that have not yet competed in the current college season.
