2018 NCAA DI Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 1

NEW ORLEANS –Early results in NCAA Division I women’s indoor track & field show that the top teams in the Preseason U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) National Team Computer Rankings were pretty accurate.

The top-four teams in the rankings stayed put in the newest batch of rankings, released on Monday.

Oregon, Arkansas, Georgia and Southern California continued to rule the roost, with Georgia’s Keturah Orji (triple jump) and Southern California’s Dior Hall (60 hurdles) posting the best marks on the NCAA Division I Descending Order List in their respective events over the weekend. Orji’s triple jump mark of 14.53m (47-8) set an American and collegiate record.

Outside of the top-four, there were major shake-ups.

Florida, Kentucky and Texas A&M all gained ground in the rankings to move up to fifth, sixth and seventh, respectively.

The Gators got a big boost from its 4×400 relay squad that notched a time of 3:31.17 that sits atop the Descending Order List, while Kentucky’s 4×400 relay team posted the second-best time in the nation this year at 3:31.65. The distance medley team in College Station recorded a finish of 11:12.06 since the last rankings that puts them in the lead this year, as well. Both Kentucky and Texas A&M moved up three spots in the rankings, while Florida moved up from sixth.

Texas, LSU and Ole Miss rounded out the top-10 after each team slipped a little in the rankings.

Baylor got a shot in the arm on the week, moving up to 12th from 19th thanks to its 4×400 relay team. The Bears quartet sits fifth on the Descending Order List after a performance that saw them net a time of 3:35.63.

The biggest jumps on the week belonged to Ohio State and Tennessee, each of whom moved up 20 spots to 15th and 16th, respectively. The Buckeyes got a stellar outing from weight thrower Sade Olatoye, who posted the third-best mark in the event on the season with a throw of 22.76m (74-8¼). The Volunteers’ Stamatia Scarvelis posted a solid weight throw mark of her own two weekends ago at 22.27m (73-0¾), placing her fifth on the Descending Order List.

Alabama (20th to 14th), Purdue (26th to 20th) and Indiana (33rd to 23rd) also increased their standings in the rankings on the week.

NOTE: Event-by-event national ranking reports now feature a new metric. Each current-season performance is measured against the last five years of NCAA Championship qualifying and assigned a percentage chance of selection after declarations. Chances are higher than 50% if the performance beats the five-year average of the last-entered seed in that event. This is an unofficial product from the USTFCCCA to aid in contextualizing performances and their relevance in the national championship landscape.
