Kenyon and Denison Stay Atop Division III Poll

There was no change atop the CSCAA / TYR Top 25 Division III Poll.  It was the final tally in advance of the conference championship season The Kenyon College women and Denison University men gathered the most votes to lead their respective polls. 

The Kenyon women maintained their top ranking in the Division III poll over Emory University. Emory topped the first two polls of the season but have now fallen to 10 points behind Kenyon . On the men's side, the top 5 places have remained the same with Denison, Kenyon, and Emory keeping their spots in the top 3 for the entire season. The WashU men made an impressive 2 spot jump up to 6th place.

The national leaders were naturally number one in the Central Region.  Carnegie Mellon led the women's Northeast South while Emory led both the men's and women's West-Midwest-South Region.  In the Northeast North Region, the Williams women and MIT men led the way.

The rankings are voted on by CSCAA-member coaches and aim to measure the top teams in head-to-head competition.
