Perfect 10: Oswego Tops in D-III Again

For the second straight week — and the 10th consecutive atop Division III overall — the Oswego Lakers are the unanimous choice as the best team in college hockey.

Teams two and three, Norwich and St. Norbert, remained unchanged.

Moving up to fourth was Plattsburgh, who defeated both Buffalo State and Fredonia to improve to 16-4-4 on the season.

After downing the University of Wisconsin-Superior, St. Scholastica lost to UW-Eau Claire, 3-2, falling one spot to fifth.

By extending their winning streak to four, Middlebury moved up three spots to sixth. The Panthers knocked off previously No. 6 Williams, 4-2, last Tuesday before downing both UMass-Boston and Babson over the weekend.

The Gusties from Gustavus Adolphus remained in seventh after splitting with then-No. 10 (and currently eighth ranked) Hamline in a home-and-home series.
The Ephs are now tied with the Pipers for eighth.

After getting swept on the road at unranked Neumann — their third loss in a row — the Elmira Soaring Eagles fell another two spots to No. 10.

Finally getting a modicum of respect from D-III voters, the 20-3-0 Adrian Bulldogs ascended one spot to No. 11.

The Bowdoin Polar Bears remained hot, jumping up three positions to No. 12, after defeating both Trinity and Wesleyan on the road. Amherst’s loss to St. Anselm cost the Lord Jeffs two spots in the poll.

After a home sweep of Utica, the Manhattanville Valiants returned to the national elite, reentering the poll at No. 14. UW-River Falls fell one spot to

No. 15 after beating in-state rival Stevens Point and getting blanked by third ranked St. Norbert., 4-0.

Wentworth dropped out of the top 15 after losing to both Suffolk and Becker.
