D-I women’s poll has few changes as Minnesota remains No. 1

All 10 teams in this week’s USCHO.com Division I Women’s Poll are the same as last week, but in a slightly different order.

What hasn’t changed is undefeated Minnesota remaining in its No. 1 position with a sweep of Bemidji State last weekend, including winning the second game in overtime.

Boston College stays No. 2 after sweeping Connecticut, Cornell moves up one to No. 3 with a win over Harvard and a tie with Dartmouth, Boston University drops one to fourth after sweeping Vermont and Harvard remains fifth after losing to Cornell and beating Colgate.

Wisconsin is up one to No. 6 after gaining a sweep of Minnesota-Duluth, Clarkson lost to Princeton, beat Quinnipiac and drops one to No. 7 and North Dakota stays eighth after sweeping Ohio State.

In the ninth slot, Mercyhurst holds steady with two wins at Syracuse and Northeastern is again No. 10 after two victories at Maine.

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.
