Week 10 Women's College Water Polo Rankings: UCLA Remains No. 1, Top Eight Remain The Same

The Week 10 women's poll is out and the UCLA Bruins hold onto the top spot and the top eight are the same as last week. The first changes came at No. 9 where the Michigan Wolverines moved up one spot and swapped spots with the San Jose St. Spartans who are now No. 10.

Looking at the two schedules from last week it looks like the swap between Michigan and San Jose State seems to be a correction by the voting. Michigan only played on Wednesday and easily defeated Notred Dame College (OH) 15-6 while San Jose State defeat then-No. 17 Hawaii Warriors 8-5. However, looking at those results and opponents I am at a loss to why the teams switched spots; the rankings should have been kept the same in my opinion.

The other somewhat odd movement comes at the bottom of the poll where the Wagner Seahawks dropped out of the poll after being ranked No. 20 last week even though they went 4-0, while Cal Baptist moved into No. 20 after defeating then-No. 16 Hartwick 9-7. So that must have been enough since Wagner's wins came against unranked MAAC teams.
