KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Following three road wins, William Carey (Miss.) hangs on to the No. 1 ranking in this week’s NAIA Men’s Soccer Coaches’ Top 25 Poll, the national office announced Tuesday.

Top 25 Highlights (historical information dates back to 2000)

  • William Carey (Miss.) earned 16 first place votes, and 497 total points to remain the top-ranked team in the NAIA for the fourth-straight week.
  • The Crusaders are now 12-0-0 on the season.
  • Defending National Champion Hastings (Neb.) won two games to improve to 11-3-0, and currently sits at No. 8 in the Top 25 Poll.
  • Southwestern Christian (Okla.) joins the NAIA Coaches’ Top 25 Poll for the first time this season, ranked No. 23.
  • No. 3 Rio Grande (Ohio) holds the record for the most No. 1 rankings of all time with 57.
  • Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) holds the record for the longest consecutively-ranked active school at 113-straight polls, dating back to the first installment of the Top 25 Poll in 2007. Rio Grande (Ohio) is second with 104-straight polls.

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 rating) 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 appear on.
  • Teams that receive only one point in the ballot are not considered “receiving votes”.
