Still No. 1: Minnesota a unanimous choice in D-I women’s poll

Minnesota garnered all 15 first-place votes yet again and reigns atop the Division I Women’s Poll this week.

Last weekend, the Gophers defeated (and shut out) Bemidji State in two straight games in the opening round of the WCHA tournament.

Boston College rises one to No. 2 after beating Maine in the Hockey East tournament and Cornell drops one to No. 3 despite sweeping Colgate in the first round of the ECAC tournament.

The rest of the poll is the same as the Feb. 25 poll.

No. 4 Boston University beat Connecticut in the Hockey East tournament, No. 5 Clarkson took two straight in the ECAC tournament from Rensselaer, Wisconsin stays sixth with two wins over St. Cloud State in WCHA tournament play and No. 7 Harvard swept Dartmouth in the ECAC postseason.

At No. 8, North Dakota swept Minnesota State in the WCHA tournament, No. 9 Mercyhurst was idle and No. 10 Northeastern topped Vermont in the Hockey East tournament.

No other teams received votes in this week’s poll.

The 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.
