Well... Week 10:

http://www.avca.org/divisions/division-three-women/poll-11-10-15/

I'm just wondering: What justification does AVCA use for "fudging" their rankings? What I mean is, only 37 of their 63 voters actually turned in a ballot this week. They ranked the teams based on those ballots, and added 26 "ghost" ballots filled in according to that ranking. The actual poll, without the ghost ballots, was:

1   Washington-St. Louis (24)   905
2   Emory (1)               861
3   Juniata (9)            860
4   Calvin (3)               827
5   Christopher Newport      765
6   Wittenberg            757
7   Claremont-Mudd-Scripps      652
8   Colorado College         627
9   Cal Lutheran            604
10   Hope               584
11   Wisconsin-Whitewater      580
12   Southwestern (Texas)      502
13   Carthage               462
14   Texas-Dallas            427
15   Wisconsin-Stevens Point      390
16   Eastern               351
17   Elmhurst               291
18   Clarkson               267
19   Wisconsin-Oshkosh         140
20   La Verne               135
21   Gustavus Adolphus         123
22   Chicago               120
23   Illinois Wesleyan         106
24   MIT                  82
25   Carnegie-Mellon         76

The actual poll was a lot closer than what they published. For example, Emory garnered only 1 more point than Juniata, not the 27 that the published poll shows. And Carnegie-Mellon barely edged out Hendrix (72) for the last spot.
