The algorithm ranked Indiana Tech No. 1 for both men and women; the Warriors are the defending men’s champions, while the women finished as runners-up at indoor nationals last year.

 

In fact, the same five teams composed the top quintet for both genders. No. 2 Doane of Nebraska, No. 3 Wayland Baptist of Texas, No. 4 Oklahoma Baptist (the defending women’s national champions), and No. 5 Siena Heights of Michigan rounded out the top five for both men and women.

There’s significantly more variance past the top five. In the rest of the top 25, no program was ranked the same for men and women. You can check out the rest of the rankings below, and be sure to peruse the PDFs (sidebar) containing full team breakdowns, individual event rankings, and much more.

Rankings will be released every Wednesday between now and the March 5-7 national championships in Geneva, Ohio.

Click here for an explanation of how the USTFCCCA National Team Computer Rankings work. The point system is based on the TFRRS national descending order lists. The higher athletes are ranked, the more points they contribute to their teams. Team totals are derived from adding up the point contributions of each of their athletes. Points do not equate to NJCAA Championships scoring.
