NEW ORLEANS—After a strong second place finish at the Great Northwest Athletic Conference championship meet in Nampa, Idaho last weekend, the Seattle Pacific women’s squad moved ten spots in the latest USTFCCCA Division II computer rankings released Tuesday to #13 in the nation.

The top five Division II women’s squads in the country are Hillsdale (Michigan), Grand Valley State (Michigan), Pittsburg State (Kansas), Lewis (Illinois), and Alaska Anchorage.

The Falcons and GNAC team champion Alaska Anchorage are the only two teams from the GNAC ranked in the national top 25.  Alaska Anchorage’s mens’ team is ranked #12 in the latest edition of the national team computer rankings.

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.

Seattle Pacific hosts the SPU Last Chance Meet Saturday at the Dempsey Indoor on the campus of the University of Washington following the conclusion of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation meet.
