Hoosiers Stay On Top, Claim The Indoor Title
compiled by Jesse Squire
(February 06, 2017)
Ron Helmer’s Hoosiers started out first in the Men’s Collegiate Men’s Indoor Dual Meet rankings and never budged from that spot. The Hoosiers win the undercover championship by virtue of a 2-0 record, with wins over #13 Tennessee and #16 Purdue. It is the first win for the Big 10 conference in the indoor rankings since they were revived in 2012.
All of this is just a lead-up to the big prize, the comprehensive indoor-outdoor dual meet championship, which no Big 10 team has won since they were first compiled way back in ’68.
Texas A&M and Nebraska remain in #2 and #3 spots that they held last week.
A notable new team in the rankings is #17 Tiffin, the defending NCAA D-II indoor champions. Army also re-enters the rankings after breaking a 10-meet losing streak to Navy.
The initial comprehensive indoor/outdoor rankings will be released in late March.
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. Teams are rewarded for taking dual meet competition seriously.
