  • 1. KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The top four teams retained their spots in the latestNABC/Division II poll for this week -- although change could very well be on the horizon – while the remainder ofthe poll was shook up by a week that saw 12 of lastweek’s 25 teams lose at leastonce. West Liberty is still in the No. 1 spot in the poll, but the Hilltoppers dropped their firstgame of the year Monday at Concord (only results through Sunday’s games are considered for the weekly rankings), therefore leaving a potential opening for the top spot next week. Augustana,FairmontState and Midwestern State all held their positions in the next three spots,while Eckerd moved up from seventh to fifth. Bellarmine,MSU Moorhead and Western Oregon all advanced three spots in the poll to the sixth, seventh and eighth spots respectively, while Queens (N.C.) moved up four places to ninth. Tarleton State dropped from sixth to 10th after dropping a narrow decision lastweek atMidwestern State. Fellow Lone Star Conference member Angelo State came in at No. 11, followed by Lincoln Memorial, Wheeling Jesuit – who made the biggestjump this week from 24th to 13th – Saint Anselm and California Baptist. Cal Poly Pomona,who dropped two road games to fellow CCAA members in the Los Angeles metro area lastweek, dropped from fifth to 16th , ahead of UC San Diego,Kentucky Wesleyan,Chico State and West Chester. Kentucky Wesleyan and West Chester moved back into the rankings after making earlier appearances among the top 25. The final five spots in this week’s ranking are held by Fort Lewis,Azusa Pacific, Ashland,Wisconsin- Parkside and Columbus State.
