2022 NAIA Women’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 2

NEW ORLEANS – The indoor season is moving right along!

Here is the second edition of the NAIA Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Rating Index for 2022, as released on Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). No marks from previous seasons are used, which means this objective ranking is comprised solely of marks from the 2022 indoor track & field season.
