2016-2017 Dunlop Women’s College Squash Team Rankings (1/8/2017)

[rankingimage]Hatfield, MA — Today, the fifth [wtr] of the season were released.

Colby’s 5-4 victory over Hamilton changed the rankings this week. Wellesley and Dickinson move up to the 21st and 22nd ranking positions. Hamilton drops to the 23rd ranking position, while Wesleyan and William Smith remain at the 24th and 25th spots. Despite the victory over Hamilton, Colby remains at the 26th position due to previous losses to Tufts, Wellesley, Dickinson, and William Smith.

As a reminder, the College Squash Association has three ranking phases per season:

  • Preseason: CSA varsity coaches will vote on the top-25 varsity teams for the preseason ranking. The Ranking Chair and the Executive Administrator will determine the remaining varsity ranking positions.
  • Manual Rankings (November – January 24th): The Executive Administrator and the Ranking Chair will rank all varsity teams manually.
  • Computerized Rankings (January 25th – Team Championships): The College Squash Association will rank teams that have played at least five matches utilizing the Elo ranking methodology. If needed, the Ranking Chair may adjust a non-varsity team’s ranking position.

Teams are reminded that to qualify for the National Team Championships, they must meet minimum match requirements:

  • Varsity teams are required to play ten (10) matches against other CSA teams to enter team championships. At minimum, each team should have at least 6 different opponents. Varsity teams should play the majority of their matches against other varsity schools.
  • Club teams are required to play eight (8) matches against other CSA teams to enter team championships. At minimum, each team should have at least five (5) different opponents.
