The Oswego State men's ice hockey team finds themselves atop the Division III national poll for the third straight week.  
Monday's ballot shows that an increasing number of the 20 pollsters believe the Lakers to be the nation's top team, as 75 percent of the first-place votes were sent Oswego's way.
Plattsburgh lost all five of their first-place votes from the week before, despite the fact that they have been idle since their 3-3 tie with Potsdam on Dec. 4. The Cardinals won't play again until New Year's Day.
Besides arch-rivals Oswego State and Plattsburgh, no other SUNY Athletic Conference schools appear in the top 15.  Fredonia did receive a single 15th-place vote after winning six of their last seven.
