COLLEGIATE DUAL MEET MEN’S RANKINGS
(Week 2)

(compiled by Jesse Squire)

Arkansas Retains Its Lead

Chris Bucknam’s Razorback men weren’t in action last week, but nonetheless retain their top position in the national Collegiate Dual Meet Rankings.

Oregon moves up to #2 after upsetting then-#2 Texas A&M at the Ducks' own Pepsi Team Invitational. This sets up what should be a national championship showdown at Hayward Field on April 20, when the yellow & green host Arkansas. Oregon was #4 going into last weekend and also passed idle Arizona State.

A&M’s Henry Lelei ran a world-leading 8:32.91 in the steeplechase in Eugene, the fastest in a dual meet since ’85.

UCLA moved from #11 to #7 with a victory over LSU and TCU. That triangular was highlighted by the Julian Wruck’s 216-8 (66.05) Dual Meet Record in the discus. The Bruin senior broke the record set by BYU’s Stefan Fernholm in ’84 and moved to No. 6 on the all-time collegiate list.

Friday

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.
