There were minimal changes in this week's WCLA Division II coaches poll, with defending champion Denver and undefeated Grand Canyon continuing to hold the top two positions. 

The only shuffle near the top of the ranking was Concordia (Ca.) moving up one spot to No. 3, with Loyola Club falling one spot to No. 4, an interesting swap considering that Loyola won its only game by 12 goals and Concordia did not play.

SMU, 7-1 overall, remains number five, followed by two undefeated teams in No. 6 Cornell Club (5-0) and No. 7 Oakland (6-0). The Grizzlies enjoyed a strong week with a narrow win over No. 19 Grand Valley and decisive victories over Western Michigan and Ferris State.

The biggest move in this week's poll belonged to No. 9 Utah, which jumped four spots following a 9-6 win over No. 12 Utah State.

No. 15 St. Thomas (5-1) and No. 19 Cal State San Marcos were the two newcomers to this week's Top 20.
