Washington men still in USTFCCCA top-25 national rankings, while Husky women drop out...

NEW ORLEANS—With a few weeks left in the regular season, the University of Washington men’s indoor track team is still ranked in the USTFCCCA national top-25 computer rankings released by the coaches’ association Monday.

The Huskies are down one spot to number 21 in the rankings.

The nation’s top five men's teams according to the rankings are Florida, Texas Tech, Georgia, Texas A&M, and Alabama.

Teams from the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation ranked in the top 25 include number 8 Stanford, number 10 Oregon, number 14 Colorado, and number 15 USC.

On the women’s side, the Huskies were less fortunate, as they dropped out of the national top 25, where they were previously ranked #23 last week after a stellar performance by their distance medley relay team, and individual performances by Maddie Meyers (left/photo by Paul Merca) and Anna Maxwell in the mile.

The country’s top five teams are Arkansas, Georgia, Oregon, USC and Kentucky.

Number 12 Stanford, and number 25 Arizona State are the only other teams from the MPSF ranked in the top 25.

Washington returns to action this weekend, as the Dawgs host the Husky Classic Friday and Saturday, and the UW Open Sunday.
