New Haven was close behind in third with 153 points and three first-place tallies.

Adelphi went 27-7 (12-2 NE10) during the 2018 season and return both of its First Team All-Conference players in Sara Bisbe and Katarina Warburton. Led by 13-year head coach Danielle MacKnight, the Panthers have won three NE10 titles in program history (2011, 2014, & 2015).

Southern New Hampshire University earned 112 points, followed by Southern Connecticut State University and Saint Anslem, who tied with 106 points to close out the top five.
