The Endless Pools/CollegeSwimming.com Division III Top 25 was released yesterday and the CMS teams are ranked sixth (women) and seventh (men). The rankings are the only objective ranking of college swimming for NCAA Divisions I, II, and III, NAIA, and NJCAA. Each swim is assigned a score relative to its national ranking. The team score is calculated from the average of the top twenty-seven swims for each team. The Endless Pools / CollegeSwimming.com Top 25 takes the best team performance over a four-week period.
This initial ranking is based on the teams' results from their opening competition against UC San Diego. Both teams competed well against the Tritons, who are ranked first (women) and fourth (men) in Division II, with three wins and five runner-up finishes in the meet.
