Washington women move into national top-10 in USTFCCCA coaches' poll...

NEW ORLEANS—The four major meets of last weekend in the Division I ranks—Notre Dame, Washington, Louisville, and Princeton—played significant roles in determining the national rankings in the latest USTFCCCA coaches poll released Tuesday.

The Washington Huskies (above/photo by Paul Merca), based on their second place finish at their own invitational meet last Friday, moved up five spots to the #10 spot, their highest national ranking since being ranked #4 in early October 2013.

New Mexico remains the country’s #1 women’s squad, followed by Colorado, Providence, Oregon and Michigan.

Other Pac-12 squads include #9 Stanford and the Huskies.  The only other Pac-12 school receiving votes was Cal, which dropped out of the national top 30.

On the men’s side, three Pac-12 schools dominate the national top 5, led by Colorado at #1, followed by Syracuse, Oregon, Stanford and Iona.

UCLA is ranked #20, followed by #22 Cal.  They’re the only other Pac-12 teams in the national top 30.

Arizona State and the Huskies received votes, but finished outside the top 30.
