Rice, UNLV Leap To Top of Mid-Major



Rice, UNLV Leap To Top of Mid-Major While many of the Ivies had a light week of competition, Rice University and the UNLV both enjoyed banner weekends at the Phil Hansell and Arena Invitationals respectively.   Those performances propelled the Rice women and Ivy men to the top of the CollegeSwimming.com Mid-Major Ranking.

The biggest movers were teams that attended mid-season invitationals.  These included UC-Davis, Florida Gulf Coast, East Carolina and Florida International on the women's side and East Carolina, Navy, and Western Kentucky for the men. 

Now in its 12th year, the Mid-Major Rankings serve to provide an objective point system to compare teams that do not benefit from large scale football or basketball conferences or those teams that provide fewer than one-half of the allowable scholarships under the NCAA rules.

The ranking accounts for teams' top performances over the preceding month and is the only objective ranking of swimming for NCAA Divisions I, II, and III, NAIA, and NJCAA. (Read More at our Point FAQ.)  

Eligible conferences include: America East, Atlantic 10, Big East, CCSA, Colonial, Conference USA, Horizon League, Ivy League, MAAC, Mid-American, Missouri Valley, MPSF, Northeast, Patriot League, and WAC.  Teams offering fewer than half of the maximum allowable scholarship levels are also eligible to participate.
