Preseason Indoor T&F Rankings: Women #11, Men #59



The USTFCCA has released its preseason indoor track national rankings. These rankings are performance estimates -- based on last season's PRs. Given the methodology, at this stage the rankings do not accommodate any contributions that may be made by freshman (such as Emily Lipari, Chris FitzSimons, and Sam McEntee), or transfers (such as Ryan Sheridan). The Villanova women are ranked #11 overall, based on the national rankings of these individuals:

Sheila Reid (9:01.13): #1 at 3000 meters
Bogdana Mimic (9:07.96): #3 at 3000 meters
Ali Smith (9:16.62): #10 at 3000 meters
Amanda Marino (9:27.05): #31 at 3000 meters
Christie Verdier (54.20): #34 at 400 meters
Shericka Ward (23.85): #31 at 200 meters
Sherika Ward (8.30): #13 at 60 meter hurdles
Ashlyn Llerandi (4.11m): #16 at polevault
DMR (11:02.83): #4

The Villanova men are ranked 59th, generating points only from its #8 DMR team.
