A poll of Middle Atlantic Conference women's basketball coaches at last week's preseason press luncheon had the Western Maryland College team finishing fourth in the Southwest Section.
Poll results plus point totals, with the number of first-place votes, were: 1. Franklin& Marshall 63 (8); 2. Johns Hopkins 54 (2); 3. Gettysburg 43 (1); 4.Western Maryland 32; 5. Dickinson 21; 6. Lebanon Valley 18.
The coaches also predicted Moravian would win the Southeast Section and the overall Southern Division title, and then defeat the Northern Division champion for the overall MAC title.
The men's poll will be released at Wednesday's Southern Division press luncheon.
