D-3 entering its last year of true competition. Next year ever regions top team is taking off.
North - Calvin d1, Oakland graduates all of their top scorers and goalie, some north teams are moving to d-2 and others are moving NAIA. (aquansis). The north will be left with Hope College and that’s it.
Pacific - this region has been slowly falling apart and moving to d-2. Metro, Mckendree, Northern Colorado. Not to mention CSU graduates all of their top players. Yes we have Iowa state but they have just become relevant and I wouldn’t be shocked if they moved to d-2. Marquette is also moving d-2.
Atlantic - Bryn Athyn is leaving the acha entirely. The power house that was CAL is a shell now. Neumann has fallen and will take years to get back if they even do. Fairfield takes a huge hit with seniors. Farmingdale has a decent amount of seniors as well. The Atlantic will be Farmingdale and rowan. I would imagine George Mason, QU, udel making a push but they are all subpar teams in the grand scheme.
South- this might be come the new powerhouse because the south has a small d1 presence. FGCU is rumored to jump to a d1/d2 model which I would say that the acha would make UFC, Usf and Tampa move as well to make a d1 presence. But who knows.
D3 is in for massive change.
