St. Thomas (2-1), idle since its Feb. 26 victory over No. 4 Montana State (5-1), holds steady in the second chair.
Montana (9-2), which lost to No. 7 Cal State San Marcos (6-1) on Tuesday night (after the poll closed), is in the third spot.
Missouri State (3-0) is at No. 5, but has critical battles with St. Thomas and No. 10 Grand Valley State (3-1) next weekend.
