Simone Plourde currently stands at #43 in the mile while Emily Venters checks in at #23 in the 5000m and #44 in the 3000m. Cara Woolnough comes in at #41 in the 5000m.
Utah's DMR squad currently sits at #9 on the NCAA qualifying list after last week's record-breaking run of 10:59.24 at the Alex Wilson Invitational held on the campus of Notre Dame.

Should anyone run a qualifying time in Seattle, they'll join the Utah DMR team in Birmingham, Ala., for the NCAA Indoor Championships held at the Birmingham CrossPlex March 11-12.
