Posted

Utica University and Hamilton College have teams ranked in the latest US College Hockey Online’s NCAA Division III polls.

Utica’s men’s team has moved into fourth into the national college hockey website’s Top 15 poll.

The women’s USCHO poll includes Hamilton College (13th) and Utica (15th).

The Utica men’s team moved up from their previous sixth place ranking and fourth is the team’s second-highest ranking of the season. Utica opened the season ranked in third. 

Utica’s men’s team is 6-2 overall, with a 6-0 record in United Collegiate Hockey Conference. They have a six-game winning streak going into this weekend’s Utica Thanksgiving Showcase at the Adirondack Bank Center. The team plays unranked Plymouth State at 7 p.m. Friday before taking on unranked Trine at 7 p.m. Saturday.

The Hamilton women’s team moved up two spots splitting a pair of New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) games at nationally ranked No. 11 Amherst College last weekend.

The team earned a 3-1 nonconference win over Morrisville State on Tuesday afternoon at Sage Rink in Clinton. The team, which is now 2-1 overall, is set to play against SUNY Oswego at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Utica’s women’s team moved into the poll after receiving votes recently.

The Pioneers are 5-1-1 overall and are unbeaten in their last six games. They have swept their last two conference opponents, King’s and Stevenson, by a combined score of 33-1 over four games.

The Pioneers play at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29 against visiting Morrisville. The game is scheduled to be played at the Adirondack Bank Center.
