NAIA - Men's Bowling - Coaches' Preseason Top 10 Poll - No. 1 SCAD Savannah (Ga.)

2019 Men’s Bowling Coaches’ Top 10 Poll – Poll 1, Oct. 9

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – SCAD Savannah (Ga.) remains at No. 1 in the first regular-season edition of the Men’s Bowling Coaches’ Top 10 poll.   

Top 25 Highlights (historical information dates back to 1999):

  • No. 10 Marian (Ind.) was the only new team to join the Top 10 this week.
  • The teams in the top five during the preseason poll remain in the top five with the addition of Hastings (Neb.) tied for No. 5 with St. Francis (Ill.)

Poll Methodology

  • The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences. 
  • Each conference is represented by one rater. 
  • 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 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.”
