Florida Southern earned 17 first-place votes to land on top of the IWLCA Division II Pre-Season Coaches Poll. The Mocs are followed by Adelphi, Le Moyne, LIU Post, and Lindenwood to round out the top five. Florida Southern, Adelphi, and #8 Grand Valley State will all face early tests, as GVSU takes on FSC and Adelphi on February 16 and 18, while the Mocs and Panthers square off in a rematch of the 2016 NCAA Championship game on February 21. Lindenwood, LIU Post, Rollins (#6), and Queens (#9) are also in action before the first regular season poll (Feb. 27), so there is a lot of potential for movement early on.

Defending NCAA Champion Middlebury College took the top spot in the IWLCA Division III Coaches Poll, along with 14 first place votes. Cortland, Trinity, and Franklin & Marshall were a close second, third, and fourth, and Salisbury rounded out the top five. Middlebury, Cortland and Trinity don’t open their season until March 4, but Franklin & Marshall has an early test at Washington & Lee in late February, as does Salisbury, who will face both Stevenson and Catholic (#11) before the first regular season poll is released on February 27. The NESCAC seems to be the toughest conference in the country again, as seven of its 11 teams have landed in the top ten for the pre-season poll.
