At the Polls

Today, we'll take a look at the Conference teams and their placement in their sport's weekly ranking.

Men's Cross Country
The DIII coaches released a preseason poll on Aug. 31 and 12-time defending CC champion Haverford is ranked fourth.

Women's Cross Country
The DIII coaches released their first poll on Sept. 8 and ranked Dickinson at No. 14. Haverford also received votes.

Field Hockey
Three CC teams in the national top 20 this week - Ursinus (6), Franklin & Marshall (10) and Gettysburg (13). I just hope someone can explain to me how the Bears can beat Messiah on the road ... and the Falcons are still ranked third with a first-place vote. BTW, Ursinus received two firsts from the DIII coaches.

McDaniel comes in at No. 23 this week in the top 25 poll. Muhlenberg and Johns Hopkins also received votes.

Men's Soccer
It's one of the top games in the country this weekend in Allentown as No. 9 ranked Johns Hopkins travels to take on No. 18 Muhlenberg. The Blue Jays and Mules are 2-3 in the Mid-Atlantic region, trailing only defending national champion Messiah. Franklin & Marshall also received votes in the regional poll.

Women's Soccer
Another Hopkins soccer team has a big game this weekend, as the 16th ranked women play host to Haverford. The Jays are ranked third in the Mid-Atlantic region behind Messiah and TCNJ, while the Fords are ranked sixth in the region.

No Centennial team is ranked in the national top 25, nor received two or more votes in the poll.
