KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Life University (Ga.) moves up to claim the top spot in the NAIA Women's Wrestling Coaches' Top 20 Poll. Campbellsville (Ky.) and Southern Oregon are second and third respectively since the last edition, while Grand View (Iowa) and Texas Wesleyan alternate spots.

Poll Methodology

* The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the five conferences.

* Two days prior to the national poll, each qualifying group rater submits the top six individuals from each weight class in his conference into the system. Only wrestlers listed on a conference ballot are considered for the national ballot.

* The top 20 individuals in each weight class is based on how each voter ranks the best individuals. An individual receives 20 points for each first place vote, 19 for second place and so on through the list. This same point system is used to determine the team ranking.

* The postseason poll is determined using the individual and team results from the national championship
