College Poll Roundup – USILA D1 & D2, IWLCA D1 & D2, MCLA D1 & D2 – Week Ending 4/15/2018 – Final With MCLA

 

Author’s Note:  Just like with the Player of the Week Awards, I’m going to experiment with combining all the College Polls into one article each week, to make it easier to follow.  There are no official D3 schools in the NCAA level in the state so we can ignore those for now.  I will include the D1 USILA poll if Jacksonville Men are ranked, as they are the only D1 team in the state.

 

USILA – Division 2

Saint Leo at #5, Tampa at #7 and FIT at #13

 

 

IWLCA

 

2018 IWLCA Division I Coaches Poll – April 16, 2018

Gators Remain at #6

 

For the eighth week in a row, Stony Brook University (14-0) is ranked number one in the IWLCA Division I Coaches Poll. Boston College (16-0) moved into the second position this week, while Maryland (14-1) slipped to third, and James Madison (13-1) and North Carolina (11-3) held their positions. Numbers six through ten remained exactly the same this week, and the only significant movement came in the bottom half of the poll. High Point (12-2) jumped from #24 to #19, and Dartmouth (8-3) entered the poll for the first time this season, landing in a tie with Georgetown (9-4) at #23.

Top-15 action opens on Wednesday this week when James Madison puts their #4 ranking on the line against in-state rival Virginia (#12). Boston College (#2) hosts #16 Syracuse, and #17 Penn State visits #3 Maryland on Thursday. The weekend’s matchups include #22 Duke at North Carolina (#5), and Virginia at #14 Virginia Tech, both on Saturday.
