Endless Pools Division III - Hopkins Hops to Top



Endless Pools Division III - Hopkins Hops to Top The top spots of the Endless Pools / CollegeSwimming.com Division III Top 25 have new occupants in the top spot.  Johns Hopkins University has moved to the top spot of both rankings following their performance at Rutgers' Frank Elm Invitational.  Each got their a different way.  The JHU women used star power in the form of Anastasia Bogdanovski and  Taylor Kitayama to move past Kenyon and Emory while the Bluejay men saw nine guys contribute to their score which accounts for a team's top twenty-seven swims each week. 

That's not to say the rest of Division III was idle.  Kenyon College sent limited squads to Northwestern.  The meet provided some of the nation's fastest times and kept the Lords and Ladies in the top two.  After that the rankings take different paths with Emory, Denison and Chicago rounding out the top five on the women's side while MIT, Chicago and Emory rank third, fourth and fifth for the men. 

Hopkins' position atop the rankings could prove short-lived however as the traditional powers of Division III take aim at major mid-season invitationals after Thanksgiving.  Kenyon will host its own Total Performance Invitational while Denison and Emory will head to the respective Miami (OH) and Georgia Invitationals.

Points for the Endless Pools / CollegeSwimming.com Top 25 are calculated using the average percentile rank of each team's top twenty-seven in each meet.  The Top 25 are ranked according on the basis of each team's highest-scoring meet within the previous three weeks.
