College Hockey:
Minnesota retains its grip on No. 1 spot in D-I women’s poll

Minnesota ran its season record to 4-0 last weekend with a two-game sweep of Wisconsin and the Gophers remain the top-ranked team in the USCHO.com Division I Women’s Poll this week.

Boston College stays second, followed by Clarkson at No. 3 and the Badgers in the fourth slot.

Cornell, ranked No. 4 last week, falls to No. 5, tied with North Dakota, which is up one from No. 6 a week ago.

Boston University retains its hold on No. 7 and ties this week with Minnesota-Duluth, which jumps two spots from No. 9.

At No. 9, Harvard is down one and Quinnipiac, unbeaten so far at 3-0-1, enters the rankings at No. 10 after not being ranked last week.

Ohio State, Northeastern and Mercyhurst also earned votes this week.

The USCHO.com Division I Women’s Poll is compiled weekly and consists of 15 voters, including 14 coaches of Division I programs and one women’s hockey writer.
