Lady Eagles Still Receiving Votes in Top 25 NAIA Coach’s Poll

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – In the latest NAIA Women’s Soccer Coaches’ Poll, Kansas Wesleyan came in at No. 23, while Oklahoma Wesleyan and Ottawa received votes, the national office announced Tuesday.

Following a 4-1 victory over McPherson on the road and a 3-0 victory at home on Senior Day against Tabor, the Lady Eagles look to continue their run through the KCAC Conference Tournament. They will travel to Ottawa for the Semi-Final round at 7 PM on Tuesday, November 6.

 Poll Methodology

 

  • The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, Association of Independent Institutions and Unaffiliated Groups.
  • The Top 25 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 30 points for each first-place vote, 29 for second-place and so on through the list.
  • The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low ratings) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot (including discounted ballots) that the teams appears on.
  • Teams that receive only one point in the ballot are not considered “receiving votes.”
