2022 NCAA DI Women’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – It’s time for Conference Championships Weekend!

Here is the latest edition of the NCAA Division I Women’s Indoor Track & Field National TFRI, as released on Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). No marks from previous seasons have been used, which means this objective list is compiled solely of current marks from the 2022 indoor track & field season.

Not much has changed up front. The top-5 held steady and two changes occurred in the rest of the top-10 as we venture into the postseason.

Texas headlines the National TFRI for a second straight week. The Longhorns tallied 12 national top-10 marks with nine of them sitting among the top-5. Julien Alfred and Kristina Blazevica continue to lead the nation in their respective events: Alfred in the 60 at 7.12c (7.10A); Kristine Blazevica in the pentathlon (4402). The Longhorns also have four marks ranked among the top-3 from Kennedy Simon (400), Tyra Gittens (high jump), Ackella Smith (triple jump) and the 4×400 relay. Texas has athletes ranked in the top-10 across eight events.

Florida is right behind at No. 2 in Week 5. The Gators boast quality and quantity in their performances this year, as 12 of their marks sit within the top-7 nationally. Two of them are national leaders thanks to Grace Stark’s 7.12 in the 60 and Jasmine Moore’s collegiate record of 14.55m (47-9) in the triple jump. Stark is also ranked third in the 60H at 7.86. Another Gator to watch for is Talitha Diggs, who has a hand in three of those ranked marks. She is third in the 200, seventh in the 400 and part of the fifth-ranked 4×400 relay.

Arkansas stayed at No. 3 in Week 5 and have 12 national top-10 marks on record this season. The Razorbacks picked up an improved effort from Jada Baylark in the 200 this past weekend. Baylark clocked 23.006 to move to No. 8 on the Descending Order List. That pairs well with her No. 8 billing in the 60. Arkansas has two chart toppers that feature Shafiqua Maloney. She is the national leader in the 800 (2:01.74) and is part of the top-ranked DMR (10:51.63).

LSU is ranked No. 4 this week with nine national top-10, including two national-leading performances from Alia Armstrong in the 60H (7.81) and Lisa Gunnarsson in the pole vault (4.51m/14-9½). Armstrong is one of two athletes that hold top-5 marks in their respective events, as she is also ranked No. 5 in the 60 (7.18c/7.16A). Favour Ofili is the second as she is ranked No. 4 in the 200 and No. 6 in the 60.

Fifth-ranked Kentucky rounds out the top-5 for a second straight week. Of the six national top-10 marks the Wildcats have this season, four of them are national leaders: Abby Steiner in the 60 (7.12) and the 200 (22.37) for the collegiate record; Alexis Holmes in the 400 (51.27); the 4×400 relay (3:27.27) that features both Steiner and Holmes. The Wildcats earned an improved mark from the DMR this past weekend, as their quartet is now ranked eighth at 10:58.81c/(11:05.86).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 5: No. 6 Texas Tech, No. 7 Ole Miss, No. 8 Texas A&M, No. 9 Virginia Tech and No. 10 BYU.

Mark your calendars for March 11-12, as the 2022 NCAA DI Indoor Track & Field Championships are set to take place at the Birmingham Crossplex in Birmingham, Alabama.
