The Week 6 women's varsity poll had a lot of movement, and as expected the UCLA Bruins moved into the No. 1 spot in the week six polls. UCLA took out the Stanford Cardinal and the USC Trojans who last week held the No. 1 and No. 2 spots respectively in the UC Irvine Invitational. Both Stanford and USC dropped just one spot to No. 2 and No. 3.
Other teams that had big jumps were Loyola Marymount, Michigan Wolverines, Maryland Terrapins, Cal State Northridge. All three moved up three spots. LMU moved up to No. 7 after they went 2-2 at the UC Irvine tournament as they beat Michigan and Irvine.
Even though Michigan went 1-3 and was blown out 13-3 by UCLA they moved up to No. 9 due to their 9-8 win over then No. 6 Hawaii Warriors. Maryland went 3-0 and is no ranked No. 11 after wins over Hartwick, a 12-10 victory over then No. 16 Hartwick and a 9-8 win over then No. 11 Indiana Hoosiers. Cal State Northridge went 1-3 but they did defeat Hawaii 10-7 to move up three spots to No. 14.
Full poll is after the jump.
