WACO, TEX.– Clarion (Pa.), who sits 7-0 and is off to the program’s best start since 1983, earned their first-ever ranking in the AFCA Division II Coaches’ Top 25 Poll. The Eagles come in at No. 25 and are tied atop the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference West Division standings. Two other schools joined Clarion as newcomers to this week’s Top 25. No. 21 Wingate (N.C.) handed then-No. 16 Lenoir-Rhyne (N.C.) a 24-14 loss, dropping the Bears out of the poll, while Colorado Mesa comes in at No. 23, which is the Mavericks first ranking since the preseason poll of 2008, where they were ranked 23rd.
