LSU Strengthens Its Lead With Quad Win

Dennis Shaver's Bayou Bengals completed their dual meet season with a victory over Penn State, Arizona State and Mississippi State. With the Tigers’ 7-0 season and all their main rivals having losses on their records, the Baton Rouge bunch is likely to win its first national championship since ’87.

Texas A&M and Oregon continue to hold down the #s 2 and 3 spots, with Penn State jumping up all the way from #14 to #4.

The only major dual meet slated for this weekend is Saturday's 34th women's edition of The Big Meet, #13 California @ #10 Stanford.

Women’s rankings will be released every Tuesday and men’s every Wednesday, with the final orderings coming on April 30 and May 1.

To be eligible for listing, a team must compete in at least one dual meet (using the T&FN definition of a dual, which is a scored meet of 4 or fewer teams). Rankings are compiled for a combined indoor and outdoor season, with outdoor competition given more weight. Teams are also rewarded for an extensive and/or challenging dual-meet schedule.
