NEW ORLEANS—The University of Washington men’s track team is ranked number 13 in the USTFCCCA’s pre season computer rankings released by the coaches’ association Wednesday.

The Huskies are in the national top-25 based on the strength of their distance runners, led by Colby Gilbert (left/photo by Paul Merca) and Fred Huxham in three events—mile, 3000, and 5000; and pole vaulter Chase Smith.

The national pre-season top five men’s teams are in order: Florida, Georgia, Arkansas, USC, and Colorado.

Other schools from the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation in the top 25 include #7 Oregon, #12 Stanford, and #20 BYU.

The Washington women are not ranked in the national pre-season computer rankings.

The top five teams in the women’s rankings are in order: Oregon, Arkansas, Georgia, USC, and Texas.

Stanford is the only other team from the MPSF ranked in the national top 25 at number 16.


The Huskies open the 2018 indoor track & field season Saturday when they host the UW Indoor Preview beginning at 9 am at the Dempsey Indoor in Seattle.
