Every year, this particular poll is determined by how the teams completed their order at the Team Duals. So, the rankings are no mystery. There are no point totals per normal.
The top ten teams include Wesleyan (9-2-1), Plymouth State (6-1), Springfield (6-4), Williams (6-5-1), Rhode Island College (7-5), Bridgewater State University (6-8-1), Johnson & Wales University (11-6-1), Coast Guard (1-11), Roger Williams University (5-8), and Trinity College (2-4).
Wesleyan captured its first-ever NEWA Duals title with a 24-12 win over Plymouth State. Springfield defeated Williams College yesterday, 21-19, to finish third. Plymouth State had upset Springfield in the third round, 24-16, to reach the finals.
Next Saturday (Jan. 29), Springfield hosts the new No. 1 team, Wesleyan, along with #5 RIC and Norwich, which finished 12th in the NEWA duals.
