In third place was Williams (2-0) with 138 points and the remaining first-place vote. In fourth was Endicott (4-1), which jumped four spots, with 130 points. And in fifth was Framingham State (4-1) with 104 points.

The six through 10 slots included Curry (3-2) with 69 points; Maine Maritime (3-1) and Plymouth State (4-1) tied for seventh with 62 points each, Trinity (1-1) with 60 points, and Norwich (4-1) with 52 points. Among others receiving votes were WPI and WNEC.
