NEW ORLEANS—The Washington Huskies, who were idle this past weekend, took a slight drop in both the men’s and women’s national computer rankings released by the USTFCCCA on Monday.
The Washington men are #9 in the national indoor computer rankings, down one spot from its pre-season listing at #8.

Men’s teams from the MPSF that are ranked include #12 Colorado, #14 Stanford, and #18 USC.
The Husky women’s squad are listed as #24 in the computer rankings, from its pre-season #18 spot.

The National Team Computer Rankings are complied by a mathematical formula based on national descending order lists. The purpose and methodology of the rankings is to create an index that showcases the teams that have the best potential of achieving the top spots in the national team race. Rankings points do not equate with NCAA Championships team points.
