FINAL COLLEGIATE WOMEN’S
DUAL MEET RANKINGS

(compiled by Jesse Squire)

LSU Rewarded For Perfect Season

Dennis Shaver's Bayou Bengals won their first women's dual meet national title since ’87—and only their second ever—on the strength of an undefeated campaign. Their season included wins over 6 of the top 10 teams.

They didn’t meet outdoors, but LSU confirmed it’s top-rated status with a win over #2 Texas A&M indoors. And A&M beat pre-season #1 Oregon to knock the Ducks back to #3.

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.

Compiled by Jesse Squire (tracksuperfan.com), the dual meet rankings are a revival of stats compiled from 1970 through 1993. A complete archive of past rankings is available at his website.
