2018 NCAA DI Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 7

NEW ORLEANS – After a week of relative inactivity in the NCAA Division I Women’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings, things heated back up again with a near-complete reshuffling of the top-25, announced the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Monday.

Southern California jumped to the top of the rankings for the first time since week eight of the 2015 season after an outstanding performance at the Pac-12 Championships. The Trojans two-spot rise knocked LSU and Oregon each down a spot to second and third, respectively.

Of the top-25 teams in the rankings, only one team remained in place between Week 6 and Week 7 (Stanford at seventh), which is the final week that all regular season marks will be used for calculations. Next week’s rankings will only use those marks that have been declared for NCAA East and West Preliminary Rounds.

Southern California posted an astounding seven top-10 NCAA Division I Descending Order List marks over the weekend on its way to a conference title. Kendall Ellis ran the fastest 400 time in the nation this season at 49.99, which is also the second fastest time in collegiate outdoor history, while Twanisha Terry’s 10.96 in the 100 sits second in NCAA Division I on the year.

Texas A&M also had a big weekend, jumping up four spots to fourth after a third-place finish at the SEC Championships. Tyra Gittens led the way for the Aggies with the second-best heptathlon mark in the nation this year with 6074 points.

Georgia rounded out the top-five by moving up one spot to fifth. The Bulldogs notched an eighth-place finish at the SEC Championships, but two women totaled three NCAA Division I-leading marks at the meet. Keturah Orji, a member of The Bowerman Watch List, broke her own collegiate record in the triple jump with a mark of 14.62m (47-11¾) while also adding the nation’s top long jump mark this season at 6.81m (22-4¼). Lynna Irby also had an outstanding weekend, as the rookie phenom posted the nation’s best 200 time this year at 22.25.

Full Reports: By Team | By Event

LSU was the runner-up at the SEC Championships, despite the Tigers’ 4×100 relay squad breaking the collegiate record with a time of 42.05. Oregon was also a runner-up at its conference championship, where Makenzie Dunmore posted the third-best 200 and 400 times in the nation on the season with respective times of 22.37 and 50.63.

Tennessee cracked the top-10 for the first time since the fourth week of the 2016 season thanks to five top-10 NCAA Division I Descending Order List marks. The Vols came in at 10th thanks in large part to Shania Collins who posted a 22.40 in the 200 for the fifth-best time in the nation this year, as well as a 10.99 in the 100 for the nation’s sixth-best mark.

Florida was the only other team in the top-10 that moved up in the rankings, jumping one spot to eighth. The Gators’ 4×400 relay team ran the second-best time this year at 3:27.30 at the SEC Championships.

Rounding out the top-10 was Kentucky (one-spot drop to sixth), which features Sydney McLaughlin in the 400 hurdles, who broke the collegiate record this past weekend, and Arkansas (five-spot drop to ninth).

The NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held in Eugene, Oregon, at Historic Hayward Field on June 6-9.
