Three weeks have passed since our last Women’s DII College rankings, and it’s time for some changes. While Winona has done nothing to warrant a drop in the Top 20, Notre Dame College has done more to claim the top spot.
It’s been all about the winning at Rutgers, as their women’s team defeated Hofstra on Sunday to improve to 5-0 in the Tri-State South, and drop Hofstra to 4-1.
Head Coach Ken Pape said earlier this season that the program is seriously thinking about moving up to DI, and continued strong performances are how they can get there.
West Chester got its second conference win of the season, getting a little more push-back from James Madison than Temple, but still recording a 67-5 victory.
No one ever accused the Ivy League of being predictable. The women’s DI conference started interestingly enough, as varsity teams Brown and Harvard battled to a 24-15 decision (in Brown’s favor), but akin to seasons past, the upsets are far from over.
Air Force delivered another blow to the Navy women, defeating the visiting Midshipmen 47-22 in front of a dense crowd last weekend. Navy, an Independent DI team competing in ACRA, needs to hit a hot streak if it’s to be considered as an at-large inclusion in playoffs.
