Cody Risch led Cornerstone to a fifth place finish at the Michigan Intercollegiate Championship on Oct. 5, and Saint Mary won the Haskell (Kan.) Invitational on Oct. 6.

Baker (Kan.)(No. 22.), Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) (No. 23) and Northwest Christian (Ore.) (No. 25) all fell out of the Top 25 this week.

Thirteen conferences/independents/unaffiliated groups are represented throughout the Top 25, led by the Cascade Collegiate Conference with five teams. Representing the Cascade are Southern Oregon, No. 8 Concordia (Ore.), No. 12 College of Idaho, No. 14 Eastern Oregon, and No. 25 Oregon Tech.

The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences/independents/unaffiliated groups. The sixth regular-season Top 25 poll will be announced on Oct. 17.
