We don't expect her to pull it off as we think Nia Akins will win her first NCAA title in the 800, but if Jones wins just 1 NCAA title she'll join Jenny Simpson and Adam Goucher for the most in CU history. Plus can Whittni Orton win her first in the 3000?

Q&A: Washington Coach Greg Metcalf Talks About the Win at Wisconsin, a Showdown with No. 1 Colorado at Pac-12s and Whether This Is His Best Team Since the Loaded 2008 Squad

Only #11 in the pre-season polls, the Huskies dominated at Wisconsin, putting all seven women in the top 50 and going 1-6 in the open race, and are now #2 in the land.

Plus should NCAAs be hosted by UW as Chambers Bay golf course (site of the 2015 U.S. Open golf tournament)?
