College Hockey:
First loss of season doesn’t keep Minnesota out of top spot in D-I women’s poll

Its record now reads 13-1-0, but Minnesota remains the top-ranked team in the USCHO.com Division I Women’s Poll.

The Gophers, who lost 3-2 to North Dakota on Sunday, gained 14 first-place votes this week, with No. 3 Cornell getting the other first-place nod.

Wisconsin stays No. 2, as does Cornell at No. 3, while North Dakota retains its hold on No. 4 and Quinnipiac vaults two spots to No. 5.

Harvard is again sixth, Boston College tumbles two places to No. 7, Clarkson is up one to No. 8, trading places with new No. 9 Boston University.

Mercyhurst stays No. 10 in this week’s poll.

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.
