Johns Hopkins Vaults Into Top Spot of ITA Division III National Women’s Team Rankings

Two teams crack the Top 30 for the first time this season

SKILLMAN, NJ (March 5) – The ITA has released its first Division III National Women’s Team Ranking of the spring season, with Johns Hopkins topping the list after claiming their first ITA Division III National Women’s Team Indoor Championship crown on Sunday. The Blue Jays entered the event ranked No. 11, but defeated then-No 10 DePauw, then-No. 3 Chicago, and then-No. 5 Carnegie Mellon to win the title.

Follow the Leader: Following Johns Hopkins, the rest of the Top 10 is (in order): Amherst, Williams, Emory, Chicago, Carnegie Mellon, Middlebury, DePauw, Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, and Bowdoin.

Conference Count: A total of 15 conferences are represented in the Top 30 this week. The NESCAC landed the most teams of any conference in the Top 30 with seven, followed closely by the UAA with six. Next was the SCIAC with three ranked squads, while the Liberty League and NEWMAC each had two. The remaining 10 conferences were represented by one nationally-ranked team.

Top 30 Newcomers: Two teams broke into the Top 30 after being unranked to start the spring. UC Santa Cruz checks in at No. 28 this week thanks to victories over Bates and Chapman, while Case Western Reserve slipped into the rankings at No. 30.

Coming Up Next: The ITA Division III Women’s Rankings will be published again on Thursday, March 14. That ranking will feature not only another national team list, but a list of team rankings for each of the ITA’s four regions as well.
