For the first time, Cal State East Bay has been ranked among the nation's top-100 Division II institutions in the National Collegiate Scouting Association (NCSA) Power Rankings. The Pioneers appear on the 2013 list at No. 100.
East Bay is one of just two schools from the California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) to be ranked in the top-100. UC San Diego was ranked No. 1 on the list for the seventh consecutive year, followed by Colorado School of Mines at No. 2 and Simon Fraser at No. 3.
NCSA's Power Rankings assess the academic and athletics standards of all NCAA programs across the country. The rankings are calculated by averaging a school's Learfield Sports Directors' Cup standing, its NCAA student-athlete graduation rate, and its U.S. News & World Report ranking.
