POLL WATCH:   Mason maintained the first position in the rankings of the Division I coaches’ poll for week three.  LaSalle and Sycamore continued in second and third, but the ECC’s Kings jumped to fourth followed by Lakota West.  Withrow, previously tied for third, fell to sixth, while Loveland is back in the top ten at seventh.  Walnut Hills (7) and Turpin (3) received votes this week, while the Milford boys team has yet to receive votes in the poll.  Look for that to change following this week’s Anderson Invitational.
