A10 Polls

Dayton took note of its ranking in the recently released A10 poll. The ranking is a team ranking, not a boat ranking (I'm still not sure I get that), so it does not address lightweights specifically. Dayton's release notes that the lightweight 8+ was ranked as high as 13th nationally in 2005. No poll is done at the end of the season and I had Dayton at number 6 at year end.

Among lightweights this year, my guess is that the A10 will come down to a battle between Dayton and URI, although St. Joe's has the capacity to put out a fast 8+. Nonetheless, with 6 rowers returning from last year's 8+, I think Dayton is the boat to beat in the A10.
