NAIA Men's Swimming & Diving Coaches' Top 10 Poll

COLUMBIA, Ky. – The Mid-South Conference has three teams ranked in the NAIA Men's Swimming & Diving Coaches' Top 10 Poll, the national office announced on Thursday.

In the rankings this week, St. Andrews (N.C.) was the only new team to enter the poll.

Cumberlands (Ky.) held at No. 5 in the poll for the second-straight ranking period after finishing second at the conference championships.

Lindenwood-Belleville (Ill.) is still ranked eighth overall, following its victory at the MSC Championships at the beginning of the month.

Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) is the final MSC team in the poll and moved down one spot to No. 9. The Blue Raiders finished third at the conference meet.

Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) jumped up two spots and took over the No. 1 position in the poll. Keiser (Fla.) slipped a spot and is now ranked second.

Rounding out the top five is SCAD Savannah (Ga.) at No. 3 and Wayland Baptist (Texas) in fourth.

Top 10 team ratings are conducted by a committee of NAIA Swimming and Diving coaches three times during the season. The committee will use the most current "top times" as the primary source of ranking.
