Thanks to its weekend sweep of RPI, Union moved up in the college hockey polls Monday.

The Dutchmen (2-0 ECAC Hockey, 5-1-1 overall) went from 10th to eighth in the USCHO.com/NCAA hockey top-20 poll. They received a first-place vote for the fourth straight week.

Cornell is the top-ranked ECACH team, placing fourth in the poll. St. Lawrence (13th) and Harvard (14th) are the other ECACH teams in the poll. Dartmouth just missed out on the top 20. The Big Green had the most points among other teams receiving votes.

In the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine top-15 poll, Union moved up from ninth to seventh. The Dutchmen received one first-place vote.
