The Pride, which have had a balanced attack this season under the direction of head coach Joel Dearing, are ranked second in the poll, behind Tufts. The Pride recently lost to Tufts in four games last weekend at the MIT Invitational.
Springfield is one of four schools in the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) to be ranked as one of the top 15 teams in New England. Wellesley sits just behind the Pride in third, while MIT is eighth, and Coast Guard is 15th.
