Women's Track & Field Moves Up to 17th Nationally

Apr 12, 2011

NEW ORLEANS - The University of Colorado women's track and field team keeps moving up the USTFCCCA Poll and now ranks 17th overall.

The Buffs have a team total of 99.74 points in the computer generated poll and are coming off a successful weekend on the track to move from 20th in last week's poll. Camille Logan clocked the fifth fastest time in the NCAA in the 1,500-meter run this season (4:19.62) at the CU Invite on Saturday. Jessica Pixler won the 800-meter run at the same meet with the 21st fastest time this season (2:07.42). Pixler also adds to CU's score as she owns the top NCAA mark in the 5,000 (15:25.58) and ranks 22nd in the 1,500 (4:23.12). Logan shows some versatility as well since she ran the 27th fastest 10k time this season (34:33.24).

There are several other CU athletes who are ranked in the top 50, which the USTFCCCA uses for its computer rankings. Shalaya Kipp ranks 23rd in the 1,500 (4:23.20) and Laura Thweatt is 26th in the 10k (34:33.08). Elizabeth Tremblay recorded a time of 2:08.45 in the 800 to currently place 35th overall.

Texas A&M is the top ranked team in the women's poll and Florida leads the way in the men's poll.

The Buffs will compete at a few meets this weekend, including the Colorado State-Pueblo Invitational, Beach Invitational (hosted by Long Beach State) and the prestigious Mt. SAC Relays.
