NEW ORLEANS – Texas A&M remains the top ranked women’s team in Division I Outdoor Track and Field as the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association announced the women’s Division I outdoor track and field rankings on Wednesday.

A&M, which has been ranked No. 1 throughout the outdoor season, earned 364.11 points this week. The Aggies are led by sprinters Porscha Lucas and Gabby Mayo who are ranked three-four on the NCAA Performance List in the 100 meters.

Oregon, which went unchanged this week, follows A&M at No. 2. Virginia Tech, LSU, and Arizona State complete the women’s top five.

Tennessee begins the next five at No. 6, followed by Penn State, USC, UCLA, and Baylor.

Both Nebraska (No. 23) and TCU (No. 24) returned to the rankings this week.

The Division I outdoor track and field rankings are compiled by Tom Lewis. The initial rankings combine performances from returning athletes who qualified for the NCAA Championships last season and recent regional qualifiers during the start of the outdoor season. Data from last year’s rankings will carry through the third week of rankings.

The 2009 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships will be held June 10-13 in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Oregon is this week’s top ranked men’s team.
