NC State, Stanford Remain Atop Division I Swimming & Diving Poll

For the first time in the 2016-17 season there was no change at the top of the CSCAA TYR Top 25 Swimming and Diving Rankings, but there was monumental change elsewhere.  For the second-consecutive poll, the North Carolina State men and Stanford women were on top.

Led by Olympian Ryan Held, the Wolfpack are fresh off a big win at the GAC Invitational.  On Monday, Held was recognized at USA Swimming's Golden Goggles for his part in the Relay Performance of the Year.  Stanford's women, meanwhile, won the Ohio State Invitational this weekend.  The Cardinal are led by Olympians Katie Ledecky and Simone Manuel.  Ledecky was named Female Athlete of the Year at USA Swimming's annual gala in Midtown Manhattan.

While there was no change at the top of the poll, there were substantial changes down ballot as several teams completed their Fall competition season.
