ACHA D3 will play ACHA D1 and win, that's not out of the ordinary.
In the ACHA being D1 D2 D3 has more to do with your enrollment, rink size, etc more than it has to do with skill level. This hurts teams who have no business in D1 or teams who have no business being in D3.
That's true to some extent, there's a few ACHA DI and ACHA DII teams that have no business being there and a few of the higher end ACHA DIII teams could compete with them. With the solid programs in each division there's generally is a skill level gap. I'd also say ACHA DI is more seperate than DII and DIII, with a lot less of a skill gap btwn the lower ACHA divisions.
