2022 NJCAA DI Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 7

NEW ORLEANS – Iowa Western CC opened up its largest lead of a tight season in the 2022 NJCAA Women’s Outdoor National Track & Field Rating Index, with the Week 7 (and final) edition being released Wednesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Only marks from the 2022 indoor and outdoor track & field seasons have been used in this objective compilation.

The top-3 all season long has been – in some order – Iowa Western CC, Barton (Kan.) CC and New Mexico JC, with each being No. 1 at least once. The entire top-5 has been similarly static, with Cloud County (Kan.) CC and South Plains (Texas) trading the No. 4 and 5 positions all season.

There will be no TFRI next week as the ratings will be replaced with head-to-head action courtesy of the 2022 NJCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships, scheduled May 19-21 at Hutchinson (Kan.) CC’s Gowans Stadium in Hutchinson, Kansas.
