2019 NAIA Women’s Soccer Coaches’ Top 25 Poll – Poll No. 9 (November 6, 2019)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The top nine teams in the nation remained as-is from a week ago in the latest edition of the Top 25. The only movement in the Top 10 this week was at No. 10 as John Brown (Ark.) dropped to No. 13 and Indiana Wesleyan continued its upward momentum to No. 10.

Central Methodist (Mo.) remained unbeaten and the top team in the Heart of America Athletic Conference while Martin Methodist (Tenn.), Lindsey Wilson (Ky.), Westmont (Calif.) and Science & Arts (Okla.) stayed put at Nos. 6-9.

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.”
