Springfield remained No. 1 in the latest poll, which it has dominated for most of the season. Wesleyan jumped to the No. 2 spot with 112 points, followed by Williams at No. 3 with 109 points. Wesleyan (6-2-1) received one first-place vote, while Williams (4-2-1) captured the remaining five first-place votes.

In fourth through 10th were Johnson & Wales (9-4-1) with 97 points; Plymouth State (2-0) with 73; Bridgewater State (4-6-1) with 71; Roger Williams (3-7) with 48; Rhode Island College (3-4) with 38; Southern Maine (1-7) with 29; and Coast Guard (0-5) with 14.
