Florida State Opens up the 2008 Outdoor Season as the Top Ranked Men’s Track Team in Division I  
March 26, 2008

NEW ORLEANS – After finishing second by only three points at the indoor national meet in March, the Florida State Seminole men’s track and field team opens up the outdoor season ranked number one in the USTFCCCA Division I Preseason Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings.  

The Seminoles, last year’s outdoor national champions, opens the outdoor season with 259.63 points.  With several key members returning to the squad and a bevy of newcomers, FSU should be the favorite to win the 2008 title.  Following the Seminoles is LSU led by sprint standouts Richard Thompson and Trindon Holliday.  Both sprinters should push FSU’s Walter Dix for the 100-meter title come June.  LSU received 247.33 points in the rankings.   

Third-ranked Tennessee follows the Tigers.  The Vols closed out 2007 with a fourth place finish at the outdoor national meet.   Florida and Southern California, Nos. 4 and 5 respectively, complete the top five in the men’s rankings.   

Georgia starts the next five in the rankings at No. 6 this week, followed by seventh-ranked UCLA.  Arizona State (No. 8) and Auburn (No. 9) follow the Bruins.   

The Washington Huskies come in at No. 10 this week to complete the top ten in the men’s outdoor preseason rankings.   

The 2008 USTFCCCA Division I Rankings are released on Wednesdays during the outdoor season. The rankings are compiled by Tom Lewis, assistant sports information director at Missouri.   

The 2008 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships will be held June 11-14th, 2008 in Des Moines, Iowa. 

LSU is this week’s top-ranked women’s team.
