A 14-game winning streak helped Central College climb one spot in the NFCA Division III rankings.

The Dutch moved from #11 to #10 after an undefeated week in Tucson, Ariz. raised their overall mark to 14-2.

Undefeated Emory, now 24-0, moved into a first-place tie with Linfield. Both schools received four first-place votes. Iowa Conference rival Luther dropped from #4 to #5 while Coe moved up two positions to #17.

Wis.-La Crosse, which was defeated by Central 10-1 March 14 in Arizona, fell out of the rankings.

Central returns to action April 1 at Grinnell, meeting Washington-St. Louis and Dubuque in non-conference games.
