The Gopher women are ranked No. 8 in the latest CSCAA poll.

Nov. 14, 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. 8 in its latest national poll.

The Gophers moved up four spots from since Oct. 31, when they were ranked No. 12 in the first poll of the season. Minnesota is 5-0 on the season and 3-0 in the Big Ten after defeating Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin.

The Gophers are the highest ranked of the eight Big Ten programs that made the top 25 or are receiving votes in the this week's poll, followed by No. 14 Indiana, No. 16 Ohio State, No. 20 Purdue, No. 22 Michigan and No. 25 Wisconsin. Both Iowa and Penn State are receiving votes.

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.
