Collegiate Records—Women

Records as ratified by the T&FN Records Committee include only those made by NCAA athletes. No NCAA II/III, NAIA or JUCO performances are included. The end of the collegiate season as defined by T&FN comes with the staging of the NCAA Championships. We do sublist at the end of the page any superior marks made after that date.

Symbols:
' after name = non-U.S. citizen
(AmC) = American-born collegian
(A) = altitude-aided mark--over 1000m of altitude (in affected events only)
i = made indoors (banked-track marks not acceptable)
p = mark still pending ratification
