Men's Track Up Two Spots In Latest Rankings

| No Comments

The men's track squad moved up two more places on Tuesday when the newest team rankings were churned out by the USTFCCCA. Washington now comes in at No. 20 on the men's side, while the women are at No. 42 but could be in for a big jump with some good Pac-10 performances.

The men's climb was thanks mostly to two performances. The first was Ryan Vu's clearance of 17-7 in the pole vault at the Ken Shannon Invite on Saturday. That sent him up the vault rankings to 12th to where he is now bringing in 9.65 points out of the men's 97.68 point total. Also factoring in was the new PR in the decathlon set by sophomore Jeremy Taiwo at the Pac-10 Multi-Event Championships. Taiwo scored 7,521 points, the best effort in 24 years by a Husky, and now ranks 10th in the nation.

The USTFCCCA website contains a number of ways to examine the rankings, with nearly 400 teams earning at least a fraction of a point.
