COLLEGIATE WOMEN’S DUALS MEET RANKINGS
The First Top Spot Goes To The Ducks
compiled by Jesse Squire
(April 01, 2014)
The first women’s rankings for the combined indoor/outdoor season has Robert Johnson's Oregon squad, fresh off its fifth NCAA indoor title, leading the way. The Ducks last won the duals crown in ’12 and will be tested right away as they meet #11 Arizona this weekend.
On the heels of the leaders, predictably, are a pair of powerful SEC rivals, Texas A&M and LSU.
|The complete rankings:|
|2.||Texas A&M (2-0)|
|4.||Arizona State (0-0)|
|6.||Washington State (1-0)|
|13.||North Dakota State (3-0)|
|16.||Texas Tech (0-2)|
|19.||Notre Dame (3-0)|
|20.||Long Beach State (6-0)|
|22.||Indiana State (5-1)|
|24.||Northern Arizona (0-0)|
|25.||Michigan State (2-1)|
Rankings reflect a combined indoor/outdoor season, but with a heavier emphasis on outdoor competition. To be ranked, a team must compete in one or more dual meets (defined as a scored meet between four or fewer teams). Teams are ranked on wins and losses, marks, and strength and depth of dual meet schedule. Teams are rewarded for taking dual meet competition seriously.
