Rounding out the top five was Kenyon College with 956 points and six first-place votes, Franklin & Marshall College with 924 points and one first-place vote, Christopher Newport University with 820 points, and Carnegie Mellon University with 780 points.

In the NSCAA poll, Tufts was once again named the top team. Tufts was followed by Kenyon, Franklin and Marshall, Christopher Newport, and University of Wisconsin-Whitewater to round out the top five.

Salisbury returns to the field on Wednesday, September 23 at 4 p.m., when it hosts Eastern University in its final non-conference match before Capital Athletic Conference play opens up. Eastern is ranked No. 14 in the NSCAA poll and received votes in the D3soccer.com poll.
