The Division I, II, and III defending NCAA Tournament Champions have been chosen #1 in their respective divisional polls to open the 2016 season in the IWLCA Women’s Preseason Coaches’ Poll for 2016. The University of Maryland, Adelphi University, and SUNY Cortland all claimed the top spots.

The IWLCA Communications committee, which oversees the coaches’ polls, has added a new feature in 2016. Following the coaches’ poll release each week, the IWLCA will conduct a “Fan Poll” on Twitter, giving everyone the opportunity to weigh in on the order of the top four teams. The Division I Fan Poll on Twitter (@IWLCA), will be posted on Tuesdays at noon, EST; the Division II Fan Poll on Twitter (@IWLCA), will be posted on Wednesdays at noon, EST; and the Division III Fan Poll on Twitter (@IWLCA), will be posted on Thursdays at noon, EST. Voting for each fan poll will remain open for 24 hours.

The next IWLCA Weekly Poll will be released on February 8 for Division I, February 22 for Division II, and February 29 for Division III.
