In addition to moving up in the national poll, the Cardinals also climbed one spot in the rankings to No. 18.  In the ratings CUA jumped two spots to No. 14 nationally, while in the South Atlantic ratings, the Cardinals maintained their hold on the No. 5 spot.

Among Landmark Conference teams, CUA continues to lead in scoring margin, scoring average, shutouts, goals against average, goals scored, goals allowed, and goals allowed per game.
