Ron Boerger:
This year the first regional rankings were issued in alpha order.  There's way more to ranking than looking at only SOS - overall record is a major factor so I would expect CMS 1, Trinity 2, ... Pomona, Chapman.  Per the pre-championship manual the primary criteria include:

--- Quote ---● Won-lost percentage against Division III opponents.
● Division III head-to-head competition.
● Results versus common Division III opponents.
● Results versus ranked Division III teams as established by the final ranking and the ranking preceding the final ranking.
● Division III strength of schedule.
- Opponents’ Winning Percentage (OWP).
- Opponents’ Opponents’ Winning Percentage (OOWP).
■ Conference postseason contests are included.
■ Contests versus provisional and reclassifying members in their third and fourth years shall count in the primary criteria. Provisional and reclassifying members shall remain ineligible for rankings and selections.
--- End quote ---

And I find it hard to believe that the NCAA would rank any 10-9 team over 19-0 no matter the difference in SOS (even though they obviously did this week, LOL).  Some of the teams listed in these initial rankings (not just this region) are real head scratchers - I bet it gets sorted out (and sorted) next week. 

Ron Boerger:
#3 Trinity (TX) downs #7 Colorado College, 3-1 (21-25, 25-16, 25-14, 25-22)

Trinity:  K: Annie Rose Leggett, Avery Tuggle 13; B: Emma Funk 10; D Annie Rose Leggett 28, Avery Tuggle 24
Colorado:  K: Georgia Mullins 16; B: Georgia Mullins 4; D Peyton Hummel 22, Georgia Mullins 19

Trinity 25-2, 12-0 SCAC; Colorado 22-4, 7-3 SCAC

Ron Boerger:
First real regional rankings are out.

Mary Hardin-Baylor had better hope they win the ASC, because with that SOS and only one game against RROs they'll be hard pressed to win a comparison against other regional representatives.
