From Press Release

The North Carolina Tar Heels (7-0) ended the 2020 season as the top team in the Division I Coaches Poll, collecting 25 first-place votes and finishing the shortened season undefeated. Notre Dame (7-0) followed in second, with Loyola (5-0), Syracuse (7-1) and Stony Brook (4-1) completing the top five. The back half of the top ten included the same teams, with Northwestern (4-3), Southern California (6-0), and Florida (6-2) in sixth, seventh, and eight, while Dartmouth (5-0) and Penn (4-1) flip-flopped in the ninth and tenth position. There was very little movement in the poll, as less than 40 games were played last week before the NCAA announced on March 12 that it would cancel the 2020 spring sports championships due to the COVID-19 public health threat.

This is the final IWLCA Division I Coaches Poll of the 2020 season.

The final Division II Coaches Poll of the 2020 season saw Le Moyne College (4-0) on top, as the Dolphins claimed 22 of 25 first place votes. Queens (5-0) finished second, West Chester (2-0) held the third spot, Adelphi (3-1) ends up in fourth, and Lindenwood (9-1) rounds out the top five. The sixth through tenth spots remain unchanged from the March 9 poll, as UIndy (7-1), Florida Southern (6-3), Rollins (6-1), Tampa (6-1), and Grand Valley State (3-1) all maintained their positions. The rest of the poll was largely unchanged, but one new team, Concordia-St. Paul (5-2), made their debut at #25 and knocked Florida Tech out of the rankings, though the Panthers still received votes. Very few games were played last week before the NCAA announced on March 12 that it would cancel the 2020 spring sports championships due to the COVID-19 public health threat.

This is the final IWLCA Division II Coaches Poll of the 2020 season.

Middlebury College (3-0) finishes the shortened 2020 season as the top team in the final Division III Coaches Poll by a unanimous vote. The top ten teams remained the same as in the March 9 poll and remained in the same position. Tufts (3-0), Franklin & Marshall (4-0), Washington and Lee (5-1), and Wesleyan (4-0) join the Panthers in the top five. Gettysburg (4-1), Salisbury (3-2), York (4-1), Amherst (4-1), and Catholic (3-0) finish the 2020 season in the top ten. There was no movement in the top half of the poll, and very little movement in the back half; Geneseo (4-1) and Pomona Pitzer (7-0) each moved up two spots, and several other found themselves ranked a spot higher. There were a minimal number of games played last week before the NCAA announced on March 12 that it would cancel the 2020 spring sports championships due to the COVID-19 public health threat.
