Stanford University and the University of Texas remained in third and fourth, respectively. Yale University rounded out the top five in the Division I poll.

The UCO Bronchos kept their first-place ranking, receiving four first-place votes. Florida Institute of Technology broke its tie with Western Washington University, receiving one first-place vote, and now stands alone in second position with Western Washington in third. University of California, San Diego has climbed into the fourth position and has been now joined by Humboldt State University, rounding out the top five in the Division II poll.

Finally, the Bates Bobcats again remained atop the Division III poll, receiving 10 first-place votes.
