2022 NJCAA DI Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 1

NEW ORLEANS – Spring has sprung, and so has the outdoor version of the NJCAA Women’s National Track & Field Rating Index, which was released Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

The first edition finds a virtual tie at the top. No marks from previous seasons have been used as this objective list is compiled solely of current marks from the 2022 indoor and outdoor track & field seasons.
