Bruins Ranked No. 6 in the Nation

Feb. 3, 2004

In this week's Trackwire 25 rankings, the Bruin women are ranked sixth in the nation with 33 points. LSU leads the nation with 67 points, followed by No. 2 Texas (55). Rounding out the Top-five are No. 3 Florida (44), No. 4 Nebraska (37) and No. 5 Stanford (34).

The Trackwire 25 projects a hypothetical score for the NCAA meet, factoring in injury reports and other variables supported by information gathered from coaches and NCAA-qualfying competitions across the country. This projection is generated by scoring the Dandy Dozen, a power ranking of the top 12 athletes and relay squads in each NCAA event.

Team Power Ranking
In the USTCA's Team Power Ranking, the Bruins are ranked No. 24 in the nation with 213.46 points. Nebraska holds the No. 1 spot with 279.08 points, followed by No. 2 LSU (275.95). Rounding out the Top-five are No. 3 Penn State (273.46), No. 4 Georgia Tech (262.01) and No. 5 North Carolina (253.67).

The Team Power Ranking is a unique system of ranking teams on the basis of quality of athletic performance, team depth, and dual meet scoring potential. The system rates teams in the same fashion as decathlete or hepthatlete. Points are assigned for two athletes in each event contested in a dual meet and points assigned on the basis of quality of performance. The top person in each event has his/her points doubled to adjust for the value of the number one performer on each team in a dual meet. The points for all events are then totaled for the ranking score.
