COLUMBIA, Mo. - For the second time since the USTFCCCA (U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association) began releasing weekly national rankings, the Tiger women have made their way into the top 25 list. They broke the barrier for the first time only a week ago (Feb. 18) after a successful weekend in Fayetteville, Ark., at the Tyson Invitational landed them at No. 24 in the NCAA.
Despite a successful weekend at home with the Collegiate Challenge closing out the regular season, the women dropped back a notch into the No. 25 spot, as released on Tuesday by the USTFCCCA. The SEC holds eight of the spots on the top 25, the most of any conference in the nation. The next highest conferewnce is the Mountain Pacific (MPSF) conference, which holds three spots.
The Tigers are in the midst of conference week, as they prepare to travel down to College Station, Tx., for the SEC Championships. The meet will be held at Texas A&M's Gilliam Indoor Stadium from Thursday, Feb. 27 through Saturday, Mar. 1. For the lastest on your Tigers, stay tuned to MUTigers.com and follow the team on Twitter @MIZ_TrackField.
