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

2019 Men’s Bowling Coaches’ Top 10 Poll – Poll 2, Nov. 14

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

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

  • Baker (Mo.) jumped into the poll to No. 7 after receiving votes last poll.
  • Indiana Tech made the biggest jump up in the poll this week as the team moved five spots.
  • The Top 5 shifted a bit this week as Indiana Tech and Martin Methodist (Tenn.) found their way into the Top 5.

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 10 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 15 points for each first-place vote, 14 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.”
