The IWLCA Communications committee, which oversees the coaches’ polls, has added a new feature in 2016. Following the coaches’ poll release each week, the IWLCA will conduct a “Fan Poll” on Twitter, giving everyone the opportunity to weigh in on the order of the top four teams. The Division III Fan Poll on Twitter (@IWLCA), will be posted on Thursdays at noon, EST, and voting will remain open for 24 hours.

The next IWLCA Division III Weekly Poll will be released on February 29, 2016.
