pat henryPat Henry’s Aggies, already bolstering their credentials with high-level performances, are in a familiar spot atop the year’s first women's dual meet rankings. Last year’s runners-up will have to defend that position this Saturday against in-state rivals Texas and Baylor plus Arizona State.

Tennessee, defending indoor dual champion Minnesota and Kansas State assume the next three positions after defeating traditional rivals in the last two weeks.

The complete women’s rankings:

1 Texas A&M (0-0)
2 Tennessee (1-0)
3 Minnesota (1-0)
4 Kansas State (4-0)
5 Indiana (0-1)
6 Ohio State (0-0)
7 Wisconsin (0-1)
8 Arkansas (0-0)

21 Texas (0-0)
22 Baylor (0-0)

To be ranked, a team must compete in one or more dual meets (defined as a scored meet between four or fewer teams) during the indoor season. Teams are ranked on wins and losses, marks, and strength and depth of dual meet schedule, and are rewarded for taking dual meet competition seriously. Texas A&M (and other 0-0 schools) have earned initial rankings based on their marks.
