Kieser Top 25

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Seahawks of Keiser (Fla.) grabbed all 19 first-place votes to secure their No. 1 spot for the third Top 25 Poll of the spring season.

Top 25 Highlights

  • The Seahawks earn the No. 1 spot with a scoring team average of 294-293-296
  • The top eight stayed the same from the previous poll
  • No. 11 Texas Wesleyan, No. 10 Rocky Mountain (Mont.) and No. 9 Victoria (B.C.) all moved up one spot
  • There were no newcomers in the Top 25 this week
  • No. 2 SCAD Savannah (Ga.) leads the NAIA Active Polls Streak with 81 consecutive appearances dating back to the 2007 season.

 

Poll Methodology

  • The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences.
  • Each conference is given one rater for every four schools in the league.
  • The Top 25 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 25 points for each first-place vote, 24 for second-place and so on through the list.
  • The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low rating) 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 appear on.
  • Teams that receive only one point in the ballot are not considered “receiving votes.
