The University of Iowa women’s track team is nationally ranked in the first outdoor rankings released this week. The Hawkeyes, who received their first national ranking in school history during the indoor season, are 20th according to The Trackwire Top 25 list.
The Trackwire 25 is compiled by Gery Verigin of www.trackwire.com. The list ranks schools according to a projected hypothetical score for the NCAA Outdoor Championships and takes into account injury reports, information gathered from coaches and NCAA-qualifying competitions across the country. The projected score is generated by a power ranking of the top 12 athletes and relay squads in each NCAA event.
