IWLCA Poll for Women's Division II - April 30

The Le Moyne Dolphins retook the No. 1 ranking this week, but four teams were tabbed for the slot as the rae for No. 1 tightened last week. Adelphi moved to No. 2 despite four first-place votes while both C. W. Post and Limestone picked up two No. 1 nominations. The same 15 schools remained in the rankings from last week.

The NE-10 continues to lead all conferences with seven ranked teams, including a 1-2 start with Le Moyne and Adelphi. New Haven (No. 7), Stonehill (No. 8), and Bentley (No. 9) form a block in the top-10, giving the league half of the top-10 in the poll. Merrimack moved to No. 13 and St. Anselm remained in the poll at No. 15.

The PSAC claimed three schools in the poll, starting with West Chester at No. 6. Lock Haven rounded out the top-10 at No. 10, and Gannon moved up two slots to land at No. 12.

The ECC has two teams in the rankings, starting with C. W. Post remains at No. 3 while Dowling just misses the top 10 at No. 11. Limestone from the Conference Carolinas picked up two first-place votes but moved to No. 5. The two Florida schools remain in the poll, with Rollins dropping to No. 4 and Florida Southern holding at No. 14.

On Wednesday, the NE-10 tournament starts off as No. 8 Stonehill hosts No. 13 Merrimack and No. 9 Bentley hosts No. 7 New Haven. On Saturday, No. 1 Le Moyne hosts the semifinals and the Dolphins play the winner of New Haven/Bentley while No. 2 Adelphi plays the winner of Stonehill/Merrimack. The same day No. 3 C. W. Post plays No. 11 Dowling.

This is the tenth weekly poll for the IWLCA for the 2012 season; the next regular-season poll will be released May 8.
