The NCAA has released the third of three weekly Division III women’s hockey regional rankings.
These are the last publicly released rankings prior to the selection of the tournament field. A similar process will be followed on selection Sunday, March 3, to determine seeding and at-large berths but those results will not be published.
Undefeated teams are again atop each region. Plattsburgh leads the eastern region, while Gustavus Adolphus leads the west. In the east region, Utica re-enters the rankings at No. 9 while Hamilton exits and several teams move slightly. In the west region, the same seven teams remain in the rankings, but St. Norbert moves from No. 6 to No. 4, St. Thomas from No. 7 to No. 5. Wisconsin-Superior drops one position to No. 6 and Lake Forest falls from No. 4 to No. 7.
The complete list of rankings includes 10 teams from the east region and 7 teams from the west region.
