Nov. 1, 2012

The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced Wednesday that the University of Minnesota women’s swimming and diving team is ranked No. 12 in its first National poll of the year.

The Gophers competed against Wisconsin last weekend, defeating the Badgers 183-112 to put the women at a 4-0 record on the season.  Minnesota will host Big Ten foe Iowa Friday night at the University Aquatic Center.

Before the NCAA Championship last year, the Gophers were ranked No. 15 in CSCAA polls and concluded the Championships with an 11th place finish.

The CSCAA Division I Team Rankings are voted on by nine CSCAA-member coaches and one media member.  The poll is not designed to predict the results of the NCAA Championship, but rather which teams would win head-to-head against other teams in the country. Ranking are based on performances that have take place since the previous poll and include invites as well as dual meets.  Several teams have yet to compete this season and therefore are not ranked.
