Yale is the third-ranked team with 325 points and one first-place vote. The ranking is the best ranking for the Big Green this season.

On the women's side, Dartmouth is ranked third with 245 points and received one first-place vote. Yale took the top spot with 283 points with 17 first-place votes. Rhode Island is ranked second with 265 points and one first-place vote. This is the highest the Big Green have been ranked all season.
