Miami Women, Navy Men Lead Mid-Majors



Miami Women, Navy Men Lead Mid-Majors A pair of familiar teams lead the CSCAA / CollegeSwimming.com Division I Mid-Major Rankings.  The Navy men, following a 10-0 fall campaign remain atop the rankings while the Miami (Oh) women edged Boston University for the top spot.

Newcomer to the poll, Cal Davis jumped into the #2 position as Eastern Michigan moved past MAC foe Missouri State to claim the #3 ranking with Denver sandwiched in-between at #4.  Boston University made the biggest jump in the poll, moving from 16th to 6th.  They were the lone American East conference representative.  The Mid-American and Sun Belt Conferences both placed two teams in the top ten.

On the women's side, the Miami-Ohio University women moved ahead of Boston which fell to second.  The Redhawks finish the fall semester at 5-3 in duals and a win at the Miami Invitational.  Towson University also dropped one spot to third.  Oakland (4) and Wisconsin-Milwaukee (5) made the biggest moves, jumping up nine and fifteen spots respectively.  The Mid-American Conference led all conferences with three teams placed among the top ten.

The Mid-Major teams were also earning the respect of Division I as a whole.  The Navy and UC-Davis men both earned votes in the CSCAA Division I Poll where they occupied the 34th and 35th spots.  Additionally, the women's teams of UCSB, Toledo, Miami, Towson,  William and Mary and Western Kentucky all earned enough votes to rank in the top 50 of the women's poll.
