ELMIRA, N.Y. — After earning a weekend sweep of United Collegiate Hockey Conference (UCHC) foe Neumann University, the Elmira College women’s ice hockey team held onto its No. 1 ranking in both the U. S. College Hockey Online (USCHO) and D3hockey.com national polls for a second consecutive week.

Elmira improved to 3-0-0 on the year after dispatching the Knights in a pair of league games by 7-1 and 2-1 scores, this after opening the season with a 4-2 win over defending national champion Norwich University.

EC returns to the ice this Friday, November 9, when the Purple and Gold battle Lebanon Valley in a 7:00 p.m. UCHC contest at the Murray Athletic Center. The top-ranked Soaring Eagles will wrap-up the weekend the following afternoon with a 3:00 p.m. showdown against the Flying Dutchmen.

The Soaring Eagles received all 15 first-place votes in the USCHO poll, and 11 of the 15 first-place votes in the D3hockey.com poll, to hold steady at No. 1 for a second consecutive week.

The USCHO poll stayed fairly consistent from the previous week, as Norwich, Plattsburgh, Hamline, Middlebury, Adrian, Wisconsin-River Falls and Gustavus Adolphus remained at spots second through eighth, respectively. However, some movement could take place in next week’s poll with No. 2 Norwich squaring off with No. 3 Plattsburgh this Wednesday, November 7.

St. Thomas jumped one spot to No. 9 after downing Wisconsin-Stevens Point in back-to-back games. Meanwhile, Wisconsin-Eau Claire dropped one spot to No. 10 after defeating Bethel and tying Gustavus Adolphus, 2-2, in overtime.
