COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Tiger women remain in the top 30 of the national rankings for the first in-season release, as announced by the USTFCCCA (U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association) on Tuesday. They currently sit at No. 28 in the NCAA and are one of seven Southeastern Conference (SEC) schools to fall within the top 30 in the country.
