PHEONIX, Ariz. - The College Swimming Coaches Association of America (CSCAA) announced a new national rankings poll today which moves Tennessee to No. 13, up from 16th, with 160 points. The Lady Vols hold a 4-3 overall dual-meet record and are 2-2 in the difficult Southeastern Conference. They are 1-3 versus ranked opponents in dual meets and hold an overall 3-4 record over teams which appear in the top-25.
Stanford (269 points) remains on top of the poll, while Auburn (258 points) moves up to No. 2 and California (253 points) is third. Other SEC schools appearing on the list include No. 6 Florida (219 points), No. 9 Georgia (193 points) and No. 21 Kentucky (83 points).
Tennessee will take on its fourth top-10 opponent this evening, as it travels to Gainesville, Fla., to face No. 6 Florida. The Gators and Georgia Bulldogs switched positions in the newest poll, making Florida the second team with a No. 6 ranking that UT has faced in less than a week. The one-meter diving will begin at 5 p.m. with the swimming portion slated for a 7 p.m. start.
The CSCAA voting takes place on a bi-weekly basis with voters representing eight conferences and two at-large votes. The next poll results will be released on Feb. 8, 2007. This should not be confused with the results of the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships which will take place in March.
