… It was another heavy week of shuffling in the regional D-III rankings as conference championships cleared the landscape … Middlebury’s men made their presence known with a surprising showing at the NESCAC Championships where they took the crown and, as a result, is rewarded with a No. 1 ranking in their region, jumping from No. 7 … Centre College’s men is making its latest appeal for the top portion of the South/Southeast region as the move back to No. 2, they were the region’s preseason No. 1 … the West region was turned on its head a bit after the results of the Northwest Conference and SCAC came known … Whitworth is now ranked No. 1 in the West, followed by new No. 2 Colorado College.

… On the women’s side of the coin, SUNY Cortland is bumped up to No. 2 in the Atlantic region … Calvin remains No. 1 in the Great Lakes for the sixth-straight week, but Hope and Ohio Northern rejoin the top three at 2-3, respectively … Washington (Mo.) moves back to the top spot in the Midwest region after a rousing title defense of the UAA title …

Making appearances in the rankings for the first time this season … MEN – Vassar (Atlantic, 10th), Swarthmore (Mideast, 9th), Saint Vincent (Mideast, 10th), George Fox (West, 10th) …WOMEN – SUNY Oneonta (Atlantic, 10th), Central (Iowa) (Central, 10th), Manchester (Great Lakes, 8th).
