The Eagles are 8-2 overall and 6-2 in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, and lead the GLIAC South Division by percentage points over Ohio Dominican (7-3, 7-3) – Ashland's opponent in the 2016 regular-season finale on Saturday (Nov. 12) at noon in Columbus.

The first two sets of regional rankings were released on Oct. 24 and 31. The selection show for the 2016 NCAA Division II playoffs will be Sunday (Nov. 13) at 5 p.m. at NCAA.com.

The 28-team Division II postseason - seven teams from each of four super regions - will begin on Nov. 19, with the national championship game slated for Dec. 17 in Kansas City, Mo. The top seed in each super region gets a first-round bye.

Ashland has made six D-II postseason appearances – 1986, 1997, 2007-08, 2012 and 2015.
