COLLEGIATE DUAL MEET WOMEN’S RANKINGS
(Week 2)

LSU Overtakes Lead, Will Defend #1 Spot On Saturday

LSU’s defeat of UCLA and TCU last weekend, combined with then-#1 Oregon's loss to Texas A&M, has moved the Tigers to the top of our 2013 collegiate women’s dual meet rankings.

Dennis Shaver’s powerful squad will defend that top ranking this weekend at their own Battle On The Bayou when they take on #8 Arizona State, #14 Penn State and unranked Mississippi State.

LSU's Natoya Goule set a new dual-meet 800 record, as her 2:01.18 broke the standard of 2:01.65 set indoors by Wisconsin's Amy Wickus in ’94.

In moving from #3 to #2, Texas A&M won the 4-school Pepsi Team Invitational, beating the homestanding Ducks plus #13 Washington State and unranked Washington.

Saturday

South Dakota State, Tulsa and Wyoming at #13 Nebraska

#8 Arizona State, #14 Penn State and Mississippi State at #1 LSU

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.
