OXFORD, Ohio - Miami University's women's swimming and diving team remains atop the CSCAA/CollegeSwimming.com Mid-Major Division I rankings, and is getting votes in the Division I Coaches Top 25 Poll.
Sporting an unblemished record against its Mid-Major Division I opponents and capturing the Miami Invitational earlier this month, Coach Dave Jennings's RedHawks lead Harvard in the December Mid-Major rankings, 254.0 to 250.2. Miami Invitational foes Florida Gulf Coast and Oakland are No. 6 and 9, respectively, in that poll. Kenyon, the CSCAA's top-rated Division III team, was defeated in its home pool by Miami in mid November.
Georgia is No. 1 in the NCAA Division I poll, and Miami is one of 13 non-Top 25 teams--and the only Mid-American Conference school--that received votes (3).
Miami puts its No. 1 status on the line on January 16 when it travels to Cincinnati to meet UC. The RedHawks host No. 11 Ohio on January 24.
